Google_Glass_250LOS ANGELES—The first porn video made with Google Glass has been uploaded to YouTube, and even though it is edited to not show genitalia while the couple are fucking, it still triggers 2257; even if they are not actually fucking, the nude simulation of fucking triggers 2257. There was no 2257 link or notice posted with the video, so the poster has willfully violated 2257 and could be sent to prison for 5 years. Congratulations.

This is what is at stake with these regulations. Explicit porn will not be posted to YouTube (for long, anyway), but that is beside the point. On tube sites that allow sexually explicit content to be posted, and on any number of social networks that allow adult content to be posted by users, Google Glass porn will trigger 2257 just as quickly as any other porn.

And here’s the kicker: there are plenty of people like me who are going to do their damndest to make sure that if 2257 remains the law of the land, that it is enforced fairly.
