Pornhub’s parent company Aylo Holdings will pay $1.8 million to the U.S. government to resolve a charge of profiting off of sex trafficking. In the worst cases, this can mean that victims of sex trafficking are portrayed in these adult videos against their will, or even without their knowledge. By 2019, a federal grand jury in the Southern District of California indicted GDP for sex trafficking, among other charges. But it wasn’t until several months after GDP was found guilty of sex trafficking that the network’s videos were removed from Pornhub and other Aylo sites. Among other safety measures, the act requires platforms to comply with certain child protection provisions.
