AIM Healthcare blamed for “Patient Zeta” and data security fiascos.

There's a lot more to this story... frankly, you're presenting the AHF side of things, which is somewhat distorted. First, Patient Zeta seroconverted on a condom set, and has changed his story several times, most notably after AHF got hold of him.

The license fiasco was attributable to simple paperwork errors that were in process of being corrected when AHF "outed" them. Sloppy on AIM's part, but dispicable actions from AHF.

The personal information was not from AIM's database being compromised; the data that is on the site is not the same data as in AIM's database (for instance, AIM does not track "porn" names, the main thrust of the leaked information). The data on the leaked site corresponds much more closely with information collected by producers, known as 2257 information -- essentially, the records that the government requires producers to collect. Clearly, there is someone with a vendetta against the industry who had access to records that they shouldn't.

With regard to porn stars being less than cooperative, if a government agent appeared at your door and demanded personal health information (and presented to warrant nor any authority to collect this information), what would you do? There's a reason that AIM was developed, and they had been performing this function quite well for years. When there was an outbreak, as you state, they were the party that informed everyone and quarantined the affected models. Let's leave the government out of porn production, okay?

Not to put too much a fine point on it, but AHF (and its director Michael Weinstein) has been on and continues to push an agenda that is contrary to what the industry wants, what consumers will pay for, and what is actually safe. When condoms are only used for genital penetration, it leaves a whole host of other avenues for STD transmission. If we rely exclusively on condoms (as the gay side does) it is only a matter of time before another HIV seroconversion takes place on the set, and this will be squarely on Weinstein's shoulders. AHF is making the industry more dangerous in a quest to push it out of California and eventually, out of the country.
