The following warnings (Federal and Paramount Pictures) of severe crimes (civil and criminal) and punishment are displayed prior to a film being viewed.
How much do you think should Paramount be fined for funding, distributing, and promoting this film?
On 9-28-2023, the word "Pornographic" was used during a congressional inquiry to describe a picture of a woman in a bathing suit.
Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene introduced the picture a woman in reference to sexual exploitation when she was met by pushback by Congressman Jamie Raskin who objected to use of the picture and referred to it as "Pornographic."
If the situation that congress was investigating is referenced as sexploitation, then is it not time for congress to open an investigation into the actions of Paramount as they continue to distribute a film, "Romeo and Juliet" (1968) that involves the nude images of minors in a sexual context?
"Facebook and Instagram ran content sexualizing minors next to corporate ads, lawsuit says"
"Unredacted complaint alleges Meta knew of ‘huge volume’ of child sexual harassment on its platforms"

On 11-10-23, The BBC Headline read: "Actors' deal includes pay rises and intimacy co-ordinators, union says"
There is no other way to attribute or explain this "First-ever" requirement....other than to refer to the lawsuit filed by Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey against Paramount Pictures on 12-30-22.
Their courageous cause of action exposed and magnified the lack of protection for minors on the set and garnered global recognition which ultimately contributed to the Union making this a top priority in their negotiations.
Leonard and Olivia...
In 2009, Erin Andrews and a jury held Marriott hotels accountable ($55 million dollar verdict) for a guest's actions of secretly filming her (in the nude) and distributing it on the internet.
If Marriott was held accountable in this case, how could Paramount not also be accountable for their financing, distributing, and promoting the 1968 film “Romeo and Juliet?”
The Paramount lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County and heard in the Beverly Hills Court.
National Television broadcast networks have removed the bedroom scene from the original, unedited version of the 1968 “Romeo and Juliet” film. Why?
Youtube will not allow the bedroom scene nudity in the "Romeo and Juliet" 1968 film to be shown on its platform. Other social media platforms have also banned this scene.
*Footnote: Prior to the lawsuit being filed against Paramount, the bedroom scene was available to view on Youtube.
The majority of high school teachers across the USA aren't permitted to show the bedroom scene when screening the film in their classes.
55 years later…
Many men have commented that the first woman’s naked breasts (nipple) they saw (other than immediate family) in their life was Olivia’s…which was exposed in the film.
Also, consider the generations of Olivia’s family (children and grandchildren) who have to live with fact that the public’s access and ability to view her naked breasts on universal pornographic websites are only a click away.
Paramount’s mistreatment (filming nude, underage images of sexual context) of Leonard and Olivia began as child abuse (under the age of 18) and has now progressed (still distributing the nude images) to the status of elder abuse (over the age of 65).
