2257 Ruling Results in “Status Quo” for Members:
Free Speech Coalition Request Questions About Ruling


January 3, 2005 – In an effort to take advantage of the upcoming AEE/Internext events this week, and to better serve the members of the industry, the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) is asking anyone who has questions regarding the recent ruling by Judge Walker D. Miller regarding FSC’s Motion for a Preliminary Injunction in Free Speech Coalition v. Gonzales to email their queries to legal@freespeechcoalition.com.

Questions will be forwarded to the FSC legal staff, which will review them and include answers to as many as possible at the membership meeting in Las Vegas on January 5, 2006, and on the FSC website. As always, questions specific to a particular situation will not be able to be answered and should be directed to individual legal counsel.

The FSC legal staff has made a few preliminary determinations regarding the ruling:
  • The Dec. 28, 2005 ruling by Judge Miller has resulted in a de facto “status quo” situation for all Free Speech Coalition members and other plaintiffs in the case.
  • The ruling does not define FSC membership according to join date. All up-to-date FSC members are covered under this ruling, whether they joined a year ago, today, tomorrow, or anytime up until a final ruling in FSC v. Gonzales.
  • The U.S. Department of Justice is enjoined from enforcing 18 USC 2257 against “Producers” under 28 CFR Part 75, unless they engage in activity that involves the “hiring, contracting for, managing, or otherwise arranging for the participating of the depicted performer.” In other words, FSC members and other plaintiffs who are “Secondary Producers” are protected under the ruling from 2257 inspection or enforcement until a final ruling in this case.
As always, FSC strongly encourage all members of FSC and the industry to comply with 2257 as much as possible until there is a final adjudication of FSC v. Gonzales.  Please visit www.freespeechcoalition.com/2257.htm for more information.
