CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

An Interesting Read On Measure B

Michael Fattarossi has written an interesting opinion on the law here

According to California Law  even if the measure passes it is unenforceable in any given city until the city adopts the measure into a city code. he cites this:

This does appear to be the case, it also exempts Vernon, Pasadena and Long Beach because they have their own Health Departments, so they would each have to have a ballot initiative on the issue.

So even if the law does pass cities in the Valley where porn is shot like Chatsworth, Woodland Hills etc, would have to bring up the issue at a local city council meeting and vote it in, opening a whole new can of worms….

Assume that most cities would go along but what about, say Chatsworth  they may be disinclined to go along, creating a conflict locally between those who want it and those who don’t, and if every city BUT Chatsworth adopts it how will the residents of Chatsworth feel about essentially being the place where all porn is shot?

This sets up an interesting dynamic…maybe Fabian should be spending his money at the local levels to fight this not county wide where it seems assured to pass.

Locally the voters won’t make the choice, the city leaders will.

It is also unclear if it just includes the inspection parts and the penalties can still be assessed on companies based in LA County, or if non condom releases can be cause for denial of the license required to shoot adult by the measure.
