• California Court Rules in Favor of Free Porn

    You might not have even been aware that one of our nation's most-cherished freedoms was under attack. We've mostly all been going about our lives, oblivious to the fact that nefarious forces out there were attempting to rob us of right we, as Americans, hold so dear that, should we ever lose it, many of us would probably take to the streets in violent protest.

    Obviously, I'm talking about free Internet porn

    "The ubiquitous distribution of free adult videos through redtube.com has had a massive negative impact on the business model of adult website proprietors," charged the complaint against Redtube owner Bright Imperial Limited of Hong Kong. "Now that consumers have the ability to watch high quality adult videos for free on redtube.com, fewer are making the choice to pay other adult website proprietors for the same content."

    Thus, Redtube.com has caused "many millions of dollars of damages to proprietors of adult entertainment websites," including those of the plaintiff in this instance, one Kevin Cammarata of Los Angeles, California. This, he charged, was a violation of California's Unfair Practices Act.

    Noooooooooooo!!!!!

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

    Alright, let's get it together. Let's calm down, relax and think about this for a moment.

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo– Oh, wait, what's this?

    A California Appeals court has dismissed the case as a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP) suit — an action designed to censor free speech. "The publication of a video on the Internet, whether it depicts teenagers playing football or adult entertainment qualifies as 'conduct in furtherance of… free speech," the court ruled last week.

    Oh, First Amendment, is there anything you can't do for our collective well-being when it suits our purposes to acknowledge your existence?
