Porn & Poutine - 6CR #105

January 22, 2021

Pornhub's parent company, Mindgeek, was told that Mastercard & Visa would suspend payment services after a NY Times' exposé child pornography and rape videos hosted on Pornhub. Consequently, Pornhub has purged over 10 Million videos from their site and removed uploading privileges from all unverified users. Darnell & Joel consider the following questions pertaining to this story:

  • What is the difference between pornography and rape?
  • Should antitrust laws be applied to Mindgeek and its potential to become a porn monopoly?
  • Why Does Canada host a company that inflicts rape videos on the world?
  • What are the unintended consequences of VISA & MasterCard's ban?
