Following the successful conviction on 17 September 2010 at Southwark Crown Court of two men found to have made £250k by procuring sperm for 800 women through an unlicensed sperm donation site, the HFEA is to investigate whether unlicensed dating-style websites used by thousands of women are breaking the law by offering what amounts to the illegal “procurement” of sperm. This is the fi rst conviction of this kind under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990. The men received suspended jail terms and fi nes of £15k each.
