Reasonable To Conclude Visa Knowingly Helped Monetize Child Porn, Says Judge In Pornhub Case


A federal judge ruled on Friday that it was reasonable to conclude that Visa knowingly ‘intended to help monetize child pornography’ on Pornhub and other sites operated by its parent company, MindGeek.

U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney of the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California wrote, “Visa knew that MindGeek’s websites were teeming with monetized child porn,” in the Fleites v. MindGeek lawsuit

“When MindGeek decides to monetize child porn, and Visa decides to continue to allow its payment network to be used for that goal despite knowledge of MindGeek’s monetization of child porn, it is entirely foreseeable that victims of child porn like plaintiff will suffer the harms that plaintiff alleges,” Carney wrote.
