The Porn Police: Know the Rules

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It may seem like sex is everywhere in film, television and online, but sexual portrayals are surprisingly restricted - and getting more so everyday. Already draconian federal regulations on the depiction of sexually explicit conduct were recently expanded and signed into law by President Bush, and now apply to an even wider class of media makers. Not just pornographers, but anyone creating and working with explicit imagery of even simulated sexual conduct - bloggers, webmasters, narrative filmmakers, documentarians - needs to know the rules and the risks.This session will touch upon:* Overview of 18 U.S.C. ?2257 & 2257A record-keeping requirements for actual and simulated sexually explicit material* New wrinkles introduced by online access/distribution of materials* Resources for additional information and advocacy support
