Max Hardcore found guilty of obscenity

Over the last few weeks extreme hardcore porn producer Max Hardcore has been on trial in Florida on obscenity charges. Today he was found guilty on all counts. While being found guilty of obscenity for his extreme brand of porn may not be a shock to some this case could have far more reaching effects than just him getting busted for making the type of stuff he makes. In this case some of the counts included his transporting obscene material over the internet.  He plans to appeal but if ultimately this conviction is allowed to stand it could open the gates and allow people to be prosecuted in any community in the nation for a website that they run. It is a slippery slope and our government took the first step down it today.

While I don’t personally like the type of porn Max makes, I do believe strongly in his right to make it and other people’s rights to watch it. The government should not be telling us what we can and can’t watch in our own homes and I believe the community should have no say in what is on the internet as whole. Why should one small town get to decide what should be allowed on a world wide network?

I agree with those that think Max will eventually win this in an appeal, but either way to day was a loss for the country and a loss for our industry.
