Now, Lawmakers are turning up the heat on PornHub by introducing a bill that allows victims of sex trafficking and revenge porn to sue sites hosting videos of them. [Business Insider]

And, PornHub Just Purged All Unverified Content From the Platform but is it enough? “While Pornhub's decision to stop unverified users from sharing videos on its site could greatly reduce abuse on its platform, it's not a guaranteed method to stop all abuse. Pornhub continued to host Girls Do Porn and even promoted it as a "Pornhub Content Partner" while it was being sued by 22 of the women for fraud, emotional distress damages, and misappropriation of their likeness, and after a Motherboard investigation showed Pornhub was being used to dox and harass the women in the videos.” [Vice]
