We will look at that question tonight through this knowing prism: free pornography is available on the Internet and pirates are running the ship. So, how do the businessmen and women who run this multi-billion industry morph before losing what’s theirs? Can they?  Correspondent Neal Karlinsky and producer Arash Ghadishah report from the Adult Entertainment Expo trade show and the 2010 AVN awards, “the adult entertainment industry’s version of the Oscars,” in where else but Sin City. Several industry stakeholders are interviewed. We understand there may be some who object to an examination of this industry. But this business that has been reinventing itself for decades (if not longer) may soon break and it’s worth taking a look. On a lighter note, the picture above was sent around with this Tweet from @NealKarlinsky: Went to adult film convention for tnight’s @Nightline & couldn’t get enuf of this. http://twitpic.com/12n2ai Will post the segment after the show. ——————– UPDATE: Embedded below is last night’s segment “Naked Ambition.”
