2257 Ruled Unconstitutional

Last night Little Tart tipped me to Violet’s tip that a federal appeals court ruled that the 2257 statute is unconstitutional. In case you don’t know it, this is the federal statute that requires record-keeping for sexually explicit depictions; these requirements invade performers’ privacy and place an undue burden on small producers and independent porn. In fact, there are quite a few erotic photo websites that have been taken down rather than comply with the 2257 statute. Mine included, which is why you can’t see my pictures of Kory Vixen online.

There is no guarantee that the ruling decision won’t be overturned on appeal, and there are other limitations, including the fact that the ruling technically only applies to the district in which it was made, but… what the hell. I’m drinking a toast to the Constitution tonight; I’ve sort of missed it.
