“Adult” Web company launches MySpace-styled site

“Adult” Web company launches MySpace-styled site

The operators of an X-rated online video game on Wednesday debuted Utherverse.com, an adults-only site that aims to duplicate the success of wildly popular teen hangout MySpace.com.

Owners of the new site, who recently launched RedLightCenter.com, expect to have more than 1 million registered users by the end of 2006 and encourage members to upload erotic photos and to complete fantasy profiles.

Brian Shuster, chief executive of Utherverse.com Inc., said people under the age of 18 are banned from using the new social networking site — a move that should help the upstart online community avoid MySpace.com’s No. 1 pitfall: pedophiles.

Teenagers, young adults and some full-fledged adults have flocked to News Corp.’s (NYSE:NWS – news) MySpace property to socialize, share interests and find dates.

I've been interested in P2P since the early, high-flying days of Napster and KaZaA. I believe that analog copyright laws are ill-suited to the digital age, and that art and culture shouldn't be subject to the whims of international entertainment industry conglomerates. Twitter | Google Plus
