Today in the life of the independent film maker I'm looking up 2257 compliance statements. There are a couple interesting law blogs out there for pornography websites. There's the Handbook for 2257 compliance. There's also the 2257 Law Blog which addresses such things as breastfeeding videos.
In my particular case I have to place a 2257 compliance card at the end of Angry Planet.
Which considering the tameness of the nudity is... sheesh.

Here we go:

In compliance with United States Code, Title 18, Section 2257, all models, actors, actresses and other persons appearing in any visual depiction of content whether actual sexually explicit conduct, simulated sexual content or otherwise, displayed in the Picture were at least eighteen (18) years of age at the time such depictions were created, and all other visual depictions displayed in the Picture are exempt from the provision of 18 U.S.C. Section 2257 and 28 C.F.R. 75 because such visual depictions do not consist of depictions of conduct as specifically listed in 18 U.S.C Section 2256 (2) (A) through (D), but are merely depictions of nonsexually explicit nudity, or are depictions of simulated sexual conduct, or are otherwise exempt because the visual depictions were created prior to July 3, 1995. Records required to be maintained for such materials pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 2257 and 28 C.F.R. 75 are maintained by Licensor (“2257 Compliance”).

In the meantime, here is a baby bunny.

So I'm going to make up a cute lil' plate of that to tack onto the end of the movies.
