Craigslist to Drop "Erotic Services" Section

May 14, 2009

Craigslist said today it will remove its erotic services section and replace it with a new adult services category. The change comes after months of pressure from state and local law enforcement officials, worried about prostitution. But internet free speech activists say the move will only open the door for law enforcement officials to bully legally operating websites. Host Cy Musiker talks about the decision with Matt Zimmerman Senior Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
