SANTA CLARA – Leading Internet portal Yahoo! Inc. has said it will remove pornographic products from its shopping, auctions and classifieds Web pages.
The move is in response to concerns voiced by its customers following the company’s expansion of its online offerings of pornographic videos this week.
The company has said that it has offered adult products through Yahoo! Shopping for two years and has controlled access to them. Yahoo also expanded efforts to block underage shoppers, requiring buyers to register an e-mail address and enter a credit card number to verify shoppers’ ages.
