Pornhub blocks the following downloads for reporting child abuse content

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Pornhub said on Tuesday it has banned users from downloading videos and will only allow certain partner accounts to upload content, following a newspaper column that said many of the videos posted on an adult site depict child sexual abuse.

The sex videos website, which denied the allegations in a column in The New York Times, said the new policies would be effective immediately and a new verification process would be implemented in the new year for users to upload the videos.

On Sunday, A Inc said it was investigating parent company Bank MindGeek into the allegations.

Billionaire investor Bill Ackman called on Mastercard and Visa Inc to temporarily halt payments to Pornhub after the newspaper’s column was published, which described some of the videos on the site as records of assaults on unconscious women and girls.

Mastercard and Visa did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.

Pornhub said it is also expanding its content modification measures and will release a transparency report next year.

The site said that some verified paid downloads will be exempt from the ban.
