Live sex video site goes quiet while Xtra explains

A porn Web site which uses Xtra's network went off air after Computerworld contacted Telecom to discuss content on Auckland-based www.live-video.co.nz - which included "24-hour live sex video". Telecom spokesman Clive Litt says all dealings with the site owners, who buy DDDS and domain name services from Xtra, "have been conditional on the fact that they are complying with the 1993 Films, Videos and Publications Act.'

A porn Web site which uses Xtra’s network went off air after Computerworld contacted Telecom to discuss content on Auckland-based www.live-video.co.nz — which included “24-hour live sex video”.

Traceroutes conducted by Computerworld initially suggested the site was being hosted by Xtra, but Telecom spokesman Clive Litt says Xtra provides only DDS connectivity and domain name services. Litt says Xtra has not cut its service to the site’s owner, Sintel Com.

“All our dealings with them have been conditional on the fact that they are complying with the 1993 Films, Videos and Publications Act,” says Litt.

“Megan”, the listed contact for the domain, referred Computerworld queries about the site to another person, Angela, who first said she would not talk to a reporter, and then disclaimed any knowledge of livevideo. co.nz or any other Web site.

The Companies Office database lists the sole director of Sintel Com Ltd as Yoav Sinai. Web searches reveal a similar US site called Sintel, offering phone sex and video, but it is not known if the two are related.

The other domain names registered last month by Sintel Com are: sintel.co.nz, 4u.co.nz, blindate.co.nz, chatline.co.nz, clubconnect.co.nz, crazy4u.co.nz, date line.co.nz and nightline.co.nz.
