Welcome back for another week of What’s Next, where we report on the intersection of law and technology. This week, we catch up with John O’Brien of Stokes O’Brien as he takes GirlsDoPorn.com to trial this week in San Diego. Plus, the Ninth Circuit rules that border officials don’t have unfettered access to our phones after all. And Verizon goes after 5G fees. Let’s chat: Email me at [email protected] and follow me on Twitter at @a_lancaster3.


GirlsDoPorn.com and the Digital Era of Privacy and Sex Work

This week, 22 women are taking the operators of GirlsDoPorn.com (GDP) to trial. The 2016 lawsuit alleges that GDP owners Michael Pratt and Matthew Wolfe, as well as actor and recruiter Andre Garcia, told the women that their pornographic videos would be sold to a private buyer or for limited distribution overseas in Australia. Instead, the videos were featured online, and many of the women’s identities leaked to family, friends, schools and work.
