"Harvey Kaplan - a pioneer in online pornography - now sees a new source of profits: mobile devices such as cell phones and video iPods. 'This thing is going to take off,' he said. 'There are hundreds of companies lined up to capitalize,'" said the ABC News Original Report. Mr. Kaplan, is Director of Operations for Xobile whose parent company, Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN). AEBN is the foremost distributor of Video-on-Demand (VoD) adult movies.
The ABC article cited one estimate that "worldwide mobile porn sales will be a billion dollars this year - nearly double that of last year." ABC says "family groups and anti-porn activists are up in arms, warning parents that the high-tech gadgets they buy for their children this holiday season may end up as porn-delivery devices."
