Join attorney Corey D. Silverstein and esteemed guests for a live, not-to-be-missed discussion of Section 230. Cyberspace (April 18, 2022) - Join adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein, the driving force behind MyAdultAttorney.com and Adult.Law, and esteemed guests for the live webinar event, “Section 230: Why aren’t we talking about it more?” The live event will take place on April 21 at 5 pm ET via Zoom. It will feature special guests Alison Boden (FSC) and Siri Dahl and is sponsored by MojoHost. “Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is arguably the foundational law that led to the growth of the internet as we know it today. In fact, without Section 230, I do not believe that many of the online platforms in existence today would have been possible,” Silverstein explained. Over the last few years, Section 230 has been attacked by politicians and lawmakers who have been dissatisfied with the level of legal protection granted to computer services providers, and – according to Silverstein – nothing can be more demonstrative of these attacks than FOSTA/SESTA becoming law. Anti-Section 230 rulings from the judiciary have been coming out of multiple jurisdictions, and current proposed legislation known as the EARN…

Clips4Sale, Corey D. Silverstein Slay Bad Faith Use of ‘Clips4Sale’ Domain

WIPO recently found in favor of C4S for the second time in less than a month, preventing bad faith use of the ‘confusingly similar’ domain. Cyberspace (March 17, 2022): Clips4Sale.com (C4S), the original and #1 downloadable video clips site, and adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein, the driving force behind MyAdultAttorney.com and Adult.Law, recently “slayed” for the second time in less than a month. This time, in a decision regarding the bad faith registration and potential use of the “confusingly similar” domain Clips4Crypto.com. A complaint regarding Clips4Sale was filed with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) arbitration and mediation center on January 6, 2022. After following proper procedure and conducting an in-depth investigation, WIPO concluded that the domain was registered in bad faith. In this specific case, WIPO concluded that the disputed domain name was clearly selected by intentionally misspelling the Clips4Sale trademark. WIPO wrote that this was “a clear case of intentional misspelling of the Complainant’s trademark, or typosquatting.” WIPO thus ordered the domain Clips4Sale be transferred to Clips4Sale. See this document for a full rendering of WIPO’s administrative panel decision process. “I’m very pleased with WIPO’s decision in this matter. In this particular case, the registrant erroneously believed…

Silverstein, the driving force behind MyAdultAttorney.com and Adult.Law, recently prevailed in a decision regarding the bad faith registration and potential use of the “confusingly similar” domain Clips4Crypto.com. A complaint regarding Clips4Crypto was filed with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) arbitration and mediation center on November 23, 2021. After following proper procedure and conducting an in-depth investigation, WIPO concluded that the domain was registered in bad faith. WIPO thus ordered the domain Clips4Crypto be transferred to Clips4Sale on February 11, 2022. See this document for a full rendering of WIPO’s administrative panel decision process. “Although it is unfortunate my client was forced to pursue formal legal proceedings, we are pleased with WIPO’s decision in this case,” Silverstein said. “Clips4Sale will not tolerate the abuse of its intellectual property and will aggressively pursue all infringers.” Per WIPO, GoDaddy.com – the service by which Cryps4Crypto was originally registered – must transfer ownership of the onerous domain to Clips4Sale by the tenth business day post notification.

Alabama Federal Judge Denies Section 230 Immunity to MindGeek, Claims Pornhub is a Publisher

Earlier today, an Alabama federal judge shut down MindGeek’s petition to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed by Jane Does over content posted on Pornhub that allegedly depicts instances of their human trafficking. The judge claimed that Section 230 protections over third party content do not apply to MIndGeek because the company “exert[ed] extensive control over the development of pornographic content on their websites.” This is a highly unusual decision, which sidesteps a discussion of the nuances Section 230 by making the unprecedented blanket claim that Pornhub was a publisher -- not a platform – thus thereby assigning liability to them for any third-party content posted on the tube site. #myadultattorney Corey D. Silverstein had this to say about this development: "Thankfully, Judge Coogler’s erroneous decision will not be the final word in this case. The 11th Circuit, if/when is given the opportunity, will hopefully correct this wrong. This is just another example of the continued attacks and attempts to narrow the protections offered by Section 230 — the very law that has allowed the evolution of the free sharing of information on the internet. I continue to find these decisions and lawmakers attempts (EARN IT Act) to narrow and…
