Business Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Porn, Privacy and the HIPAA

Porn, Privacy and the HIPAA
How can an industry that bears all to its consumers ever consider privacy to be a hot topic? The story of the possible infection spread rapidly throughout the community and even into mainstream press. I was personally contacted by Los Angeles's Tribune affiliate KTLA for a quote after the reporters ... More »

Adult Around the World

Adult Around the World
In his bestselling book,"The World is Flat," Thomas L. Friedman argued that globalization has resulted in a level playing field in terms of commerce, where all competitors have equal opportunity in a global market where historical and geographical divisions are becoming increasingly irrelevant. T... More »

Great Domains Can Be Bad Trademarks

Great Domains Can Be Bad Trademarks
Competition in the adult entertainment industry has become fiercer than ever. Nowhere is this more evident than on the web. The widespread availability of seemingly limitless free adult materials online, coupled with rampant Internet piracy and very low barriers of entry for new competition are a... More »

Gay Adult Retail

Gay Adult Retail
The ever-evolving retail market is changing at such a rapid pace that tracking the latest micro-blip in consumer tastes is virtually impossible. It can be tricky enough for a brick-and-mortar retailer to keep pace with its overall consumer base, much less the interests of a sub-niche. And yet, gi... More »

Move Over DOJ, It's FTC's Turn to Regulate

Move Over DOJ, It's FTC's Turn to Regulate
The adult entertainment industry breathed a collective sigh of relief last November with the election of Barack Obama. To be sure, the industry has good reason to believe that the change in administration in Washington will mean less risk of federal obscenity and 2257 prosecutions. With a form... More »

The RapidShare Ruling

The RapidShare Ruling
The gap of understanding between "free culture" open file sharing advocates and content producers intent on maintaining the value of their work product continues to widen. When the recent German court ruling against RapidShare.com was announced, the two sides could not even agree on its meaning or i... More »

Sex, Lies & Children

Sex, Lies & Children
A favorite trick of the censors in this country is to blur the lines between protected speech, in the form of adult erotica on the one hand, with patently illegal material, in the form of child pornography on the other, by mixing the two at every opportunity. Family Values groups and other opponent... More »

Cross-Cultural Marketing Made Easy

Cross-Cultural Marketing Made Easy
One basic lesson learned by online adult entertainment entrepreneurs is that the Internet is a global medium. Perhaps a statement of the obvious, it would seem that despite the common sense of it, many marketers — both mainstream and adult — just don't "get it" when it comes to serving the needs... More »

Basic Content Rights Forms

Basic Content Rights Forms
Every adult entertainment company that produces or exploits content, or operates under a brand name is in the business of exploiting intellectual property rights. In fact, it would be accurate to say that the principal product of the adult entertainment industry is intellectual property. Because ... More »

Foreign-Language Erotica

Foreign-Language Erotica
English is the most prominent language on the Internet, and that includes the adult Internet. More adult websites are published in English than in any other language, but that doesn't mean that other languages are not important to the adult entertainment industry. Millions of people surf the Interne... More »

Cam World: Camming and Toys Go Hand in Hand

There is nothing more satisfying than pleasure, especially if it is sexual. The size or the presentation of the stimulus does not matter if the sensations and tension the body receives transform the way... More »

Cam World: Injecting Personality Into Your Room

Since the last issue of Cam World, I’ve made some significant life changes. I’m working from Colombia now. This was a decision that was not entered into lightly, but change gives you a chance... More »

Fraudulent Brazilian Trademark Registrations Running Rampant
