Airwood Media 2257 Statement
Source: Airwood Media
by: Company Press Release

Dear Airwood Media Affiliates:

As you probably are aware, the 2257 law has created lots of panic and misinformation. After meetings with our attorney Jeffrey Douglas, here is our position for the time being:

All of our zipped content for affiliates has always been softcore photos. We have never offered hardcore photos or videos as zipped content. Our hardcore material is only a small percentage of our total production and we have always only offered that via our Free Hosted Video Galleries... which are hosted on our servers.

If you make your own galleries or host your own material I would suggest only using our Zipped content and making sure the photos you are using are not "masturbatory". Please feel free to determine what constitutes "masturbatory" by reading as much as possible on the resource boards or consulting an attorney. There is great info here: FreeSpeechCoalition.com and here: AVN.com/2257

If you are hosting any Hardcore Airwood Media content (including banners) I would suggest removing it and using our Free Hosted Galleries, all which have our 2257 compliance statement and link on them. Please continue linking to our 2257 statement (MattsModels.com/freestuff/copyright.php) using the following text: "18 U.S.C. 2257 Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement"

As we produce all our own content and we are in full compliance with the 2257 law, we will not be taking down any of our sites or removing content from our servers at this time.

Regarding ""secondary producers" We will not be handing out any models personal info or Id's. Here is the official advisory from our attorney on that subject:

"I represent Airwood Media. I am very familiar with 18 U.S.C. ? 2257 in my capacities as a First Amendment and criminal defense practitioner, the Chairman Emeritus of the First Amendment Lawyers Association and the Chair of the Board of the industry's trade association, the Free Speech Coalition. I write this letter exclusively in my capacity as Airwood Media's attorney. Despite General Gonzalez' efforts at reviving the concept of "secondary producers" in the most recent version of regulations in support of 18 U.S.C. ? 2257, the concept is not supported by the statute itself. The only case addressing the issue, Sundance Assocs. Inc. v. Reno, 139 F.3d 804, 807 (10th Cir.1998), held that the "secondary producer" requirements of the regulations to be unconstitutional. We rely on that holding, and further decline to violate the privacy of the performing artists by disseminating private data when not required to do so by law. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to call, or have your attorney do so."

This concludes our official statement on 2257. I will be sending out a separate Airwood Media letter promotional letter after this.
