A sexual abuse victim has sued Visa for a video posted on her porn platform pornhub, He may fight the payments company after the US court’s decision.

Serena Flights was 13 years old in 2014 when, according to her, A boyfriend forced her to make a video Which he later posted on Pornhub.

Flights alleges that Visa conspired with Pornhub’s parent company, MindGeek, to monetize abusive videos in its processing of advertising revenue.

consequently, The finance company had sought removal from the case. Fleits’ story was featured in the New York Times ‘Kids of Pornhub’ which, when published, prompted MindGeek to remove millions of videos and make significant changes to its policies and practices.

The victim’s allegations are summarized in a pre-trial decision by the Central District Court of California.

Original pornographic material, posted on Pornhub without the victim’s knowledge or consent, When he discovered it it had been viewed 400,000 times. She alleged that after watching the video, she contacted MindGeek as her mother “to inform her that the video qualifies as child pornography.” It was removed a few weeks later.

But users who had the video redownloaded it multiple times, with one re-downloading garnering 2.7 million views, he said. The complainant alleges that MindGeeks earns advertising revenue from these uploaded videos.

“While MindGeek benefited from child pornography submitted to plaintiffs, plaintiffs were intermittently homeless or living in their car, heroin addicted, depressed, suicidal and without their family support,” the report said. . Cormac J Carney.

MindGeek told the BBC that at this stage of the matter, The court has yet to rule on the veracity of the allegations. And it must be ascertained that all the allegations of the plaintiff are true and correct.

“When the court can actually consider the facts, we are confident that the plaintiffs’ claims will be dismissed for lack of merit,” the company said.

The judge ruled that at the current stage of the proceedings, “the Court can infer the strong likelihood that the Visa network was involved in at least some advertising transaction directly related to the plaintiff’s video.”

But the payment firm argues that “The allegation that Visa recognized MindGeek as an authorized dealer and processing payments on its websites does not imply that Visa has agreed to participate in any form of hosting or storing amounts of sex.”

But Judge Carney said that, again at this stage of the proceedings, “the court can comfortably infer that Visa had Intended to help MindGeek monetize child pornography For the fact that Visa continued to provide MindGeek with the means to do this and knew that MindGeek was doing it. ,

A Visa spokesperson told the BBC that The company condemns sex trafficking, sexual abuse and child sexual abuse material.

“This pre-trial decision is disappointing and misrepresents the role of Visa and its policies and practices. Visa will not tolerate the use of our network for illegal activities. We believe that Visa is an unsuitable defendant in this case.”

MindGeeks CEO and CEO resigned last month. The departure of the top executive follows more negative press on an article in The New Yorker that reviews, among other things, restrictive corporate policies. Well, MindGeek told the BBC the following:

– They have zero tolerance with the publication of illegal content on their platform;

– Ban posts from anyone who has not presented a government-issued ID that passes third-party verification;

– they eliminate the possibility of downloading free content;

– Integrate multiple platforms technological and content moderation tools;

– Institute fingerprinting of all videos that violate non-consensual content and child sexual abuse content policies to prevent reposting of deleted videos;

– Expand your workforce and moderation processes.
