France’s top court rejects core of law attempting to block top tube sites 

As reported by Xbiz, A Paris court of appeals rejected at the end of last month  the attempt by local War on Porn groups, led by an extremist Catholic organization, to use France’s media authority and the courts to block the most popular adult tube sites in the country.

Considering that most tube sites use a pop up to confirm their users are over the age of 18, French media regulator ARCOM went to court in March and April to demand that French ISPs block Pornhub, YouPorn and RedTube, all owned by MindGeek,  as well as Tukif, xHamster, XVideos and XNXX.

The recently formed agency ARCOM considers this measure does not make it possible to guarantee that only an adult is likely to access the pornographic content available.

Rees reported that last on 19th May the Council of State, an appeals court, issued a ruling rendering null all the activities taken up by ARCOM in connection with the initial requests to order a block of adult sites.

The age-verification mandate was secretly added to a quickly approved domestic violence law during an atypical and sparsely attended COVID-era session of the French Parliament in July 2020.

The law that specifies that adult companies should be required to institute measures beyond simply asking an internet user whether they are of age, also empowers a government institution, like ARCOM, to demand that the president of the judicial court order the ISP providers to immediately block infringing sites in the entire country.

Therefore, the Council of State specifically pointed out in the annulment of the proceedings against tube sites, the role played by the extremist Catholic organization Civitas in orchestrating the campaign against adult websites over supposed failure to comply with the 2020 law.

Halloween Spending Soars Despite Economic Challenges

Halloween in the United States is witnessing a surprising trend: record-high spending in the face of economic challenges. In 2023, spending on Halloween is expected to reach a historic $12.2 billion, surpassing the already impressive $10.6 billion spent in 2022, as reported by the National Retail Federation (NRF). This growth occurs despite the backdrop of rising inflation and looming economic uncertainties.

The breakdown of spending shows a notable increase in various categories:
$4.1 billion on costumes, up from $3.6 billion in 2022.
$3.9 billion on decorations.
$3.6 billion on candy, an increase from $3.1 billion the previous year.

Moreover, the average per-person spending is forecasted to rise to $108.24, exceeding the 2021 record of $102.74. This surge in expenditure highlights an interesting dynamic: while facing inflationary pressures, Americans are not shying away from celebrating Halloween in grandeur.

In 2023, the NRF survey revealed that 73% of respondents planned to partake in Halloween-related activities, a slight increase from 69% in 2022. This shift to more in-person festivities follows the COVID-19 pandemic, which had dampened the holiday spirit in previous years.

However, economic challenges are shaping consumers’ shopping habits. Reports from PowerReviews indicate that 73% of Americans are adjusting their Halloween shopping due to financial strains. Cost-saving measures include recycling costumes, buying cheaper candy, and shopping for sales and discounts. Nearly half of the consumers plan to start shopping before October, a strategy to spread out expenses over time.

Despite these cost-conscious approaches, some consumers are turning to credit card debt and Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) options to finance their holiday expenses. This trend underscores the current financial landscape where people are struggling yet still willing to spend on holidays like Halloween.

To manage these expenses, consumers are advised to create a holiday budget and stick to it, shop for deals, and consider financial options like personal loans for debt consolidation. Retailers, recognizing the tightening budgets, are focusing on personalized promotions and in-store experiences to attract shoppers.

In conclusion, while the economic landscape presents challenges, the allure of Halloween remains strong in the U.S., with consumers eager to celebrate the spooky season, albeit with a more budget-conscious approach.
