Free online porn monopoly threatens adult entertainment industry


November 18, 2018



of the ten largest pornographic sites, eight belong to the same company; actress Brandi Fox recalls that it is a job, not a hobby and that, therefore, it is important that content be duly remunerated. When we look at the list of companies with the highest internet traffic in the world, all the names sound familiar. YouTube, Netflix, Twitch … only one of them is unknown: MindGeek. According to the company’s official data, where it is defined as a leader in design, development, marketing, SEO and management of sites with a large volume of traffic, there are more than 1 billion individual users per day, 3 million ads and more 1,000 employees. How can such a company, with such force, not become the agenda of the great media? MindGeek is dedicated to pornography. You own the vast majority of YouTube clones that make free erotic content available on the Internet.

In total, of the ten most viewed pornography sites on the internet, eight belong to MindGeek. ExtremeTube, GayTube, YouPorn, SpankWire, Pornhub … only escape their tentacles xHamster and Xvideos. If we take into account that according to The Richest magazine, every second there are 28,258 users watching pornography on the internet, which supposes about 35% of total downloads, its strength becomes evident. In addition, have already bought the studios Babes.com, Brazzers and Reality Kings and some live sex cams sites. Its domain has gone so far as to speak of monopoly, a problem for professionals in the pornographic industry.

This stance makes sense to most people who engage in pornography. The power of the company comes basically from offering free content protected by copyright. MindGeek gets its huge audiences and presumably makes a profit by offering free access to pirated content from specialized websites.
