What's Next?
The battle of HD DVD vs. Blu-ray Disc is now over. Well, almost. While the adult industry often is credited with the dominance of VHS over Beta, porn producers wield less influence in the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray tug of war. That drama all but ended with Warner Bros. announced last month that it ... More »

A New Legal Reality

A New Legal Reality
If you would have told me on George W. Bush's inauguration day in 2001 that we would reach the last year of a two-term Bush presidency with merely a handful of federal prosecutions of adult entertainment entrepreneurs, I would have politely provided you with a litany of lawyerly reasons why you were...
