    I need a little advice. Me and my friend is setting up a amateur porn site. All or videos and pics will be strictly amateur from a apartment we have rented out solely for that purpose. We will also do some outside shoots.

    The women/girls will be regular girls we meet day to day at bar,clubs,streets etc..

    I really been wanting to do this because a lot of girls already give me hints of wanting to be on camerea and I know they will fo it for some money and some will do it for free jst to feel important and of worth..Trust me gettung the girls to do this is no problem, i have plenty to fullfill this project.

    We have already bought some light tripods and a amateur camera. We want this to be real and look real. We have the apartment rent out in our corp name and we also have some videos and pics stored away already from prevesius sessions


    we want to start a membership site of some sort but my question is is there any laws that needs to be look at before we venture off into this and will the firls need to sign any paperwork? I am doing a lot of reasearching on this and making calls as i want this to flow right.

    All advice will be greatly appreciated

    One of the biggest things, legally you'll want to do is familiarize yourself with the Title 18 U.S.C. 2257 record keeping requirements. I'm guessing that since you've been researching this you probably already know that :)

    Basically you will need to have the sign a model statement attesting to the fact that they are of legal age, they are consenting to your using their image/personality/etc for the purpose of image & video, you will need to have a copy of a valid picture id. Additionally, if you're going to be in the pictures/videos you will need one for yourself too.

    On your website, you will need to have a page that says you adhere to the record keeping requirements and include the name and address of the person who holds the records.

    Here's more on that:
    Code:
    http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode18/usc_sec_18_00002257----000-.html
    Other than that, you might want to make sure the apartment is zoned properly for that and some states/cities etc have laws intact that say basically that any type of 'adult' related business cannot be conducted within a certain distance from schools/churches/municipal buildings/parks/ etc.

    In addition to that, since you'll be filming there are some states as well that have requirements for film productions in general as well.

    Hope that helps.

    Title 18 U.S.C. 2257? how about old sites. Are they grandfathered in? How does pornhub get away with it?

    Old sites are indeed grandfathered in. Sites like pornhub, tube8, etc. are legal as they are not the producers of the content. If you look at the letter of the law, 2257 refers to the record keeping of the content producer. Anyone else publishing the content is exempt from that particular law. It is a gray area though, and there have been many law suites about it. If you aren't going to comply with 2257, you will want a damn good lawyer on your side. I'm sure pornhub is able to afford that ;)

    If you read the disclaimer on the bottom of the site, it usually states for what purpose a certain site is exempt. As a rule of thumb, if you are shooting your own content, you will need a model release, copy's of 2 types of ID, properly affixed to a 2257 form, and filed neatly. You will also have to put the address of record location on every tangible video and every website. There are numerous small things like that, all in all it isn't too hard. I had all the necessary forms/disclaimers etc. It's been a while though, not sure if it's all still around. I ended up quitting after the first shoot. 3k in camera and lighting money wasn't enough to make professional looking porn, and I wasn't willing to invest more than that.

    "...and some will do it for free just to feel important and of worth..."

    A - You're right. But you need to pay them, legally, for the right to use thier image. If you don't give them something of value, they will sue you. I promise.

    B - You're wrong. Some will book the time and not show up. They don't want to be on camera ...they just want to know they are good enough for you to want them.

    domain name, domain name, domain name, domain name, it is one of the most important aspects to look into. w/o a good domain you are "screwed" with a porn site. No punt intended.

    Are Pay site even that profitable any more? (besides the big boys) Thought with the advent of tubesites, membership sites are going the way of the dodo... I'm no expert on the subject though....

    I strongly suggest anybody wanting to start a porn site to talk with a good lawyer expecially if they are in the USA
