Pornhub Parent Company to Pay Damages to Trafficked Women Filmed and Posted on Their Site

Aylo Holdings S.A.R.L., the company that operates Pornhub and other adult websites, acknowledged in federal court that it had profited for years from pornographic content that depicted sex trafficking victims, but pleaded not guilty to a charge of engaging in unlawful monetary transactions involving sex trafficking proceeds, Erin Nolan reports for the New York Times. Through an agreement with prosecutors, the company agreed to pay damages to women who said they were forced to appear in pornographic videos that were then posted to the company’s websites without their consent.

Known as a deferred prosecution agreement, the deal requires the company to pay a fine of over $1.8 million and be assigned a monitor who will assess Aylo’s protocols for screening content and addressing reports of illegal content on its platforms. In return, it would allow the charge against Aylo to be dropped after three years. known as a deferred prosecution agreement, requires the company to pay a fine of over $1.8 million and be assigned a monitor who will assess Aylo’s protocols for screening content and addressing reports of illegal content on its platforms.
