New .XXX Domain Won’t Protect Children from Pornography

Print Friendly

The Internet Corporation for assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has voted to create a new domain, .xxx, exclusively for pornography and obscenity. The proponents of the new domain are not those seeking to protect children, but instead are set to make over $30 million a year from sales of the new domains. Robert Peters, President of Morality in Media, says this move will essentially double the amount of pornography already on the Internet, and do nothing to protect children. Peters explains how, even with Internet filters, parents will be unable to protect children from this domain when friends, libraries, and web-enabled portable devices are within easy access.
