The Phoenix Forum to Present .XXX Panel

Mar 30, 2011 2:30 PM PST

TEMPE, Ariz. — The Phoenix Forum will present the first industry tradeshow panel discussing the approval of .XXX and how it may impact the adult community.

On Saturday, April 2 at 1 p.m., the two seminar rooms at the Tempe Mission Palms will be merged into one larger area to accommodate this discussion.

Panel participants include moderator Tom Hymes from AVN Media Network; Colin Rowntree of Wasteland; Jeffrey Douglas from the Law Office of Jeffrey J. Douglas; Ron Cadwell of CCBill and Allison Vivas of Pink Visual/TopBucks.

Even though ICANN’s approval does not legally mandate any immediate change, many in the industry are wondering what the impact might be and what are the potential next steps.

Various questions will be discussed such as how could .XXX affect delivery methods? How could it impact SEO practices? Could the partitioning of content into different top-level domains (TLDs) marginalize market segments? Could the split produce a clearly defined categorization of entertainment safe from the reach of minors? Could it help combat piracy or fraud?

These and other questions will be discussed and debated from representatives on all sides of the issue. Event organizers said the Phoenix Forum has always taken an agnostic stance on seminar topics in order to encourage balanced panels and open discussions. The .XXX panel will continue to reflect that approach.
