Visa Law Suit

This is a critical juncture in the law. If we now have records of criminal behavior in computers then supporting such behavior financially is a crime in my book. The judge is thinking it over seriously.

This weekend, Judge Cormac J. Carney of the U.S. District Court of central California refused Visa’s request to be dismissed from a case that claims it conspired to help MindGeek, parent company of the website Pornhub, profit from images of child sexual abuse.

“If Visa was aware that there was a substantial amount of child porn on MindGeek’s sites, which the Court must accept as true at this stage of the proceedings, then it was aware that it was processing the monetization of child porn, moving money from advertisers to MindGeek for advertisements playing alongside child porn like Plaintiff’s videos,” Judge Carney wrote.
