PornHub Parent Company Faces Class Action Lawsuit for Failing to Properly Screen Sexual Content

PornHub’s parent company MindGeek is facing a class-action lawsuit over failing to adequately screen sexual content before it is uploaded to its pornography website.

Personal injury law firm Diamond and Diamond Lawyers filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of Christine Wing, who alleges that intimate videos of her were uploaded to PornHub’s website without her consent or knowledge. “What does one have when you’ve lost your privacy in the worst way?” Wing said. “This is a violation of the most egregious kind.”

The class-action lawsuit against MindGeek encompasses all Canadians who have appeared in sexually explicit material uploaded on PornHub’s website. The content in question may include non-consensual sexual acts, sexual abuse, and even child sexual abuse, which may or may not still be on the website, despite repeated calls for PornHub to remove the material. “It is astonishing how little safeguards PornHub had against harm,” Diamond and Diamond Lawyers Head of Commercial and Civil litigation Darryl Singer. “We’re talking about a business built on under-age, non-consensual and pirated content.”

The latest lawsuit against PornHub follows similar legal action filed by a plaintiff only known as Jane Doe, who accuses PornHub of allowing material to be posted to its website depicting sexual abuse committed to her when she was a child, and that she was only made aware of the content’s existence when a high school friend notified her via text message.
