Zócalo at the Hammer: Dirty Business: Should the Porn Industry Be Saved?

Zócalo at the Hammer: Dirty Business: Should the Porn Industry Be Saved?

Moderated by Mariel Garza of the Los Angeles Daily News.

One of Los Angeles’ economic secrets is its $12-billion-a-year pornography industry, located primarily in the San Fernando Valley. Competition from amateur porn on the Internet, piracy, and other pressure is cutting into the profits. Zócalo brings together a panel of experts to discuss whether or not LA’s porn industry is a boon or a burden.
