    I didn't know where else to post this so I posted it here. This 2257 law, license or whatever it is has been bugging me for some time now.

    Is this applicable for people that live outside the US?
    What are the consequences if you don't include it in your site?
    How do you apply for it?
    Is it really necessary to apply for it if you are not promoting anything illegal?

    and do you have to pay for it?

    First of all it does not in any way apply to people outside the USA. It is a US law and only enforceable in the USA.

    If you are doing adult with US sponsors most have 2257 links on their sponsor provided materials like Free Hosted Movie and Photo Galleries. If not ask them for a link to a 2257 page provided by them.

    As the law is written if you are a US you can not really comply 100 percent because you can not obtain the ID of some models. They or the company that shot the content will not provide those documents.

    So you have to walk a fine line if you are a US based Adult Web Master.

    I hope that clears it up and if you have more specific questions feel free to ask.

    Thanks for the helping me understand 2257 law even further. I am not from the US.
    Anyway thanks. Btw I've seen your post on adult sites. Some pretty good shit you wrote there. I've recently put up a new thread on link exchanges, would you be interested? I am assuming that you own some adult sites. I own only one, a TGP and I'm trying to do some link exchanges. If you are interested contact me here or pm me. Thanks again
