In Volume 6, Issue 1 of the North Carolina Journal of Law and Technology, Kate Reder published an article on a related topic, entitled “Ashcroft v. ACLU: Should Congress Try, Try, and Try Again, or Does the International Problem of Regulating Internet Pornography Require an International Solution?” 6 N.C. J. L. & Tech. 139 (2004). In that article the author discussed the .xxx domain as one of possible solution to filtering software or Congressional regulation. The following article takes the subject one step further, discussing the legal ramifications for adult entertainment companies who become engaged in a domain dispute involving a .xxx tag.
