Two child protection associations, e-Enfance and La Voix de l’Enfant, are suing the main French internet access providers. They want to obtain the blocking of several pornographic sites considered too accessible to minors, announced Friday, September 3, their lawyer, Laurent Bayon.

SFR, Orange, Bouygues Télécom, Free, Colt Technologies Services and Outre mer Télécom were summoned on Thursday, September 9 before the Paris court.

These two associations point to the fact that sites like PornHub, Tukif, XNXX, xHamster, xvideos, Redtube and YouPorn do not verify the age of Internet users or are content at best to ask them to tick a box stating that they are of legal age, has explained Laurent Bayon.

However, the Penal Code prohibits leaving pornographic content accessible to minors. And the law on domestic violence in 2020 established that asking a user if he is of age is not enough to exonerate the company of its responsibilities, adds the lawyer.

“The companies which own these sites are opaque and almost untouchable because of their mode of organization, being often installed in tax havens. My clients will try to act on the pipes to turn off the tap”, he continues.
