Internet provider Arcor forced to block YouPorn

by admin on 20/10/2007

German laws are quite tough when it comes to access to pornography for juveniles. While every porn provider needs to prove that teenagers can’t access their contents, internet amateur video platform YouPorn doesn’t have any access control mechanism at all. A German porn provider went to court on this matter and reached an injunction that internet provider Arcor has to block YouPorn for all 2.4 Million customers.

This is the first time in Germany that a carrier is made liable for content someone else generated. Where will this lead to?
