Hu-what? Internet killing porn?

The poor porn industry is suffering. And the once-wonderful World Wide Web is to blame, reports The New York Times.

Well, more like the free or über-cheap porn that's now so rampant online. Cheaper digital equipment's inspiring a new breed of amateur pornographers, and nationwide porn revenues—which were in the $4 billion range for 10 years—dropped to $3.6 billion just last year. That's expected to fall even more by the time this year's through.

Can you see Jenna Jameson and co. begging, Madonna-like, for the end of Net piracy? Update: In other news, guess who's late for the party? The Daily News is doing a multipart series on porn and calling it "The (San Fernando) Valley's secret industry." Umm. Worst kept secret. Ever.
