Harming kids by giving them a criminal record in the name of preventing harm...

Ohio age/ID verification law proposes criminal sanctions against kids who circumvent the controls

Full story: Age Verification in USA...Requiring age verification for porn and social media
The Ohio state legislature is debating House Bill (HB) 295 , introduced last October by Republican state Rep. Steve Demetriou. HB 295 would require adult entertainment websites with content considered harmful to minors to verify users' ages using government identification or transactional data, with felony penalties for website operators who violate the law.

An amended version of the bill, dropping the penalties for website operators to a misdemeanor, was adopted during the hearing before the House Criminal Justice Committee on April 3.

However, one of the more controversial elements of the bill is the establishment of a misdemeanor charge against minors who manage to circumvent the age gate through falsified records or the use of a virtual private network that spoofs an IP address.

 

 

Obituary: David Waterfield...

A key figure in the British porn business, being the first to run cinema clubs showing hardcore and then starting Your Choice in the late 80s.

David Waterfield is one of pioneers of the UK hardcore porn business. He passed on the Sunday morning in Thailand, his home since 1996.

Waterfield was born 9 August 1943. He first flirted with the adult entertainment business in the mid-1960s, working as a stage manager for a Soho strip club. Later, Waterfield joined the Merchant Navy as a commis waiter, serving first-class passengers on trips from Southampton to New York. It was in New York that he noticed the large queues for the film Deep Throat . The entrepreneurially minded Waterfield, sensed a business opportunity and managed to obtain a small-gauge print of the film and smuggled in back to the UK. Advert for Waterfield's Exxon Cinema.

On his return, Waterfield opened two London-based cinema clubs in 1971 -- the Exxon and Archibald's -- which both screened hardcore films. As the Cinematograph Act 1952 did not apply to all film shows, Waterfield was able to use the cinema club model to show porn.

Later Waterfield and his wife Clark had the idea to start Your Choice , a business hosted in the Netherlands that dispatched pornographic video tapes to UK customers. Rather than risk customs seizure, they employed agents across the UK who copies video tape masters that had been smuggled into the country.

Your Choice was a success. Clark and Waterfield moved to Amsterdam, registering the business. They licensed titles from American and European studios, who were eager to enter the British market.  The company also became well known for its own successful series of porn videos, Viewers Wives.

The Melon Farmers would like to thanks David Waterfield and YourChoice for its well run affiliate scheme that helped fund the website.
