With a very detailed account of one teenage boy's life, the New York Times today has a very extended feature on the illicit use of webcam by teens who make money selling their bodies.
Over the past months I've mentioned on multiple occasions that the web cam market has a large percentage of "adult" conversation for pay occurring and was under the impression it was more offshore than here in the USA. I guess I'm not surprised.
Nor was I surprised to see some names named. Familiar companies that we all of were basically the enabling tools used to enable payment and gift giving.
There is a concept of ill gotten gains that one sometimes has to consider and given that these dollars were tied to illegal activity, even though the companies themselves were not doing things wrong.
