"Pornhub parent company MindGeek has been hit with a massive $600 million class action lawsuit accusing it of hosting child-porn videos on the website.

The lawsuit, filed in the Superior Court of Québec at the end of December but first reported by the Journal de Montréal on Friday, seeks restitution from the smut site on behalf of “The Children of Pornhub.”

The class representative is a woman who alleges that a video of her rape as a 12-year-old was posted to Pornhub, and who accused the site of being deaf to her pleas to take it down.

MindGeek also was hit with an $80 million suit in California federal court last month by 40 women who claim it made millions off the alleged GirlsDoPorn sex-trafficking scheme.

The porn site last month removed more than 10 million videos from its page as part of its recent crackdown on illegal content.

The purge marked a massive shift in the porn site’s approach to content moderation amid pressure from advocates and payment processors Mastercard and Visa, which earlier cut ties with Pornhub over allegations that the platform is infested with videos of rape and child sex abuse.

A representative for Pornhub did not immediately respond to a request for comment."

They have to try settle out of court because a jury can go either way with any case no matter who is right or wrong.

If they lose and have to pay $600 million it will be the end of them.

Think about all the people who work there and co-operate with them, Mindgeek is a big player in adult, and provides income to thousands of people.

How much does the company have on hand is what counts.

There is no simple formula, most of the time it depends on how deep the pockets are of the party you want to sue.
