ICANN has approved the xxx domain name.

Quote
The netís authority over names is now set to add .xxx to the set of global top level domains like .com and .net, thanks to a June 25 board vote that looks to put an end a five-year battle over the controversial addition to the net.

Because the Internet needs more porn.  icon_twisted

This is a good thing, and if anything, I believe it will lead to LESS porn, at least within the regular domains. It should also be easier to set up filters to block porn sites and avoid such sites just by glancing at the url. Considering that more than 100 000 people and/or companies are already in line for purchasing domain names in the .xxx domain, we're going to see a lot of traffic move there pretty quickly.

And who's going to force these sites to move? 

Quote
Even when .xxx is finally approved, new or existing adult sites will not have to use .xxx. Any legislation in the U.S. to compel such a move would likely be struck down by the Supreme Court on free speech grounds, given how the court ruled on a website-labeling provision pushed by the U.S. government in the Clinton administration.

This seems like the very reasons that porn sites would not want to use the domain.

And if they do force them to move, who decides what is porn and what is not?  Apple?

Nobody's going to force anyone to move. Since .xxx is a new domain, good names will be more available there, attracting the sites. If someone already has a .com or .net or .whatever domain, they're probably not going to want to leave it. This change came too late for that. It's probably going to mean that many sites will choose to only have an .xxx name, which means the regular domains will have less porn.

Ah crap, the Internet is messing up everything! I guess the days of 'XXX' being used as an acronym for potent moonshine are gone.  icon_razz

Any serious porn site respects these kinds of things. There's plenty of unserious actors in the field, yes, but those are impossible to have any kind of control over anyway. Just because something is porn doesn't immediately mean that whoever runs it wants to promote their material everywhere, no matter what. Anyone who thinks otherwise has a very skewed view of the porn industry.
