    Just wondering, if I were to start hosting it, what kind of legalities would be involved? Obviously underage/illegal nudity. Anyone else hosting porn? :hsd:

    then read up on it lol

    i did it a few years ago when 2257 was at its worse

    i had to make sure i had copies of drivers license and constent forms on file to prove the actors were over the age of 18

    not sure if that is still needed or how bad they are enforcing it all now, but it is smart to have on file to cover your ass

    What if it's not porn you produce, though? Like if you have a reseller/user on your server hosting their favorite porn videos or something like that.

    If I'm hosting someone's actual porn site, then I will request a drivers license. Thanks for the tip

    with jailbait sites, underage nudity :noes:

    but also check laws in your area

    i know in ohio, there are some counties that do not allow anytype of porn, adult stores nudie bars and shit like that, so having a server there with porn on it is against the law too :noes:

    What if you're located in one state, but your servers are located in another? :noes: Do I go by where the server is or the owner of the server?

    they have all that shit on record on there site, then you are golden, but if it is someone's actually porn site, make sure they are over 18 and they have proof for any guess stars

    i used to also have sites through amateur networks like southern charms and others and before they would allow updates to be posted they needed all guest stars info faxed or mailed to them to verify they consented and over the age of 18

    where the server is, that is the physical location of the porn stored

    unless you are shooting the porn in your county too, then you have to check the laws there too

    Hmm, quite a bit of stuff that goes into it. I'm going to do a bunch of research. It's definitely something I want to look into. Just need to understand the laws

    So have you actually hosted porn on your servers before? If I want to offer OT members hosting for their porn to share with other OT members or something like that, then would I just need to monitor those people and make sure the videos/photos they upload don't violate any laws? Or just take their word that they won't do it?

    Where are your servers located?

    You do not have to have any documentation as far as the porn goes as long as you are not the producer. If I were you, I'd recommend to your clients that they provide at least links to 2257 documentation as a show of good faith, though it's not legally necessary.

    If your servers are located in states like Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, etc., then you could possibly face obscenity charges IF someone were to press charges on one of your clients(far stretch), but that's really your only concern.

    Essentially, you're in the clear as long as the porn hosted is legal(ie., no CP, no animal porn, no snuff films, no rape films.. presuming your servers are on US soil).

    As long as the host allows it and it's legal where the server is hosted (for the most part) it's all good.
