Pornhub are not the good guys (Huck)

Pornhub are not the good guys
After news that Pornhub has deleted 80 per cent of its content, attorney Dr Ann Olivarius argues these reforms do not go far enough.

“Instead of praising Pornhub, let’s bury non-consensual image abuse once and for all. Let’s force MindGeek, WGCZ Holdings (owner of XVideos) and all other porn suppliers to put harm prevention before exploitative profit.”

Our Senior Partner Ann Olivarius writes for Huck Magazine about Pornhub’s recent removal of unverified content. It shouldn’t be up to credit card companies to force this change – governments should listen to victims and mandate that all porn sites verify consent.

These changes are needed to protect women, LGBTQ+ people, children and all victims of image-based abuse.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no-one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
