Visa /Mastercard
« on: August 01, 2022, 11:16:00 am »
Huge court case in America .Visa allowed payments to a Kiddy Port Site knowing it was selling illegal porn .If Visa are responsible for the services they supply whats the story with other services who allow their services .Is this why Free Now or Uber ask drivers to rate the user to cover their own arse .If it turned out a certain block of Flats was a drug Superstore and they were accused of facilitating customers could they say that the customer was pre vetted by the Drivers ?Same if a Driver goes Nuclear on a passenger can they say That driver was well regarded by other passengers we had no indication of any problem .

Visa said it will allow cardholders to buy some porn from Pornhub’s parent company, MindGeek — but not Pornhub itself.

The credit card giant said it will lift its payment ban for MindGeek sites that host porn from professional studios. The Luxembourg-based conglomerate owns several such sites, including Brazzers, Digital Playground and Men.com.

“Following a thorough review, Visa will reinstate acceptance privileges for MindGeek sites that offer professionally produced adult studio content,” a Visa spokesperson said Wednesday.

But Visa says it will still ban payments for Pornhub and other MindGeek platforms where users can upload their own videos, such as YouPorn and RedTube.

THE CASE ...In a setback for Visa in a case alleging the payment processor is liable for the distribution of child pornography on Pornhub and other sites operated by parent company MindGeek, a federal judge ruled that it was reasonable to conclude that Visa knowingly facilitated the criminal activity.

On Friday, July 29, U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney of the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California issued a decision in the Fleites v. MindGeek case, denying Visa’s motion to dismiss the claim it violated California’s Unfair Competition Law — which prohibits unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business acts and practices — by processing payments for child porn. (A copy of the decision is available at this link.)
