The industry, for instance, is battling the introduction of the .xxx suffix for porn-related Internet domains,on the grounds the concept unfairly targets their industry.

Another issue is sin taxes. With states strapped for revenue, new sin taxes — on items including cigarettes, alcohol and "strip," adult dancing, clubs — have been levied or increased.

On a national level, fee-based — subscription- or membership-oriented — Internet porn is big business and a rich target.

What do you think? Is a sin tax for users a good idea?
