The deal, which was called a “deferred prosecution agreement,” called for the company to pay a fine of more than $1.8 million and have a monitor look over how Aylo screens material and handles reports of illegal content on its platforms. The charge against Aylo for three years would be dropped in return.

Prosecutors say that Aylo, who used to be known as MindGeek, runs several websites where people can post and share sexual material. Since 2009, GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys have been making sexual movies that Aylo streams.
Prosecutors say that between 2016 and 2019, Aylo got several messages from women saying that they were tricked into making movies for GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys and that the videos were then put on Pornhub.com without their permission.

Prosecutors said Aylo knew about a case filed by victims of the companies in 2017 and that a GirlsDoPorn cinematographer had admitted to lying to women to get them to be in the movies. Even so, prosecutors say, the business kept hosting the movies and making money from its deals with the production companies.

In 2019, some GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys owners were charged with sex trafficking and other crimes in California for “deceiving and coercing” young women to appear in pornographic films that were then posted online without their permission.

Police said Aylo didn’t remove the movies from all of its sites until the end of 2020.

Aylo stated in a statement that it “deeply regrets” having ever hosted any GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys content.

It was said in the release that the production company now knows that those forms were obtained “by fraud and pressure,” even though it gave the platforms official papers that looked like permission forms signed by the women who were featured.
