Do I need a 2257 Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement?
We do not guarantee accuracy of this information, it is not maintained with changing law, and we are not authorized to provide legal advice. With that being said… This plugin provides a pop-up window that is NOT linked from pages of your website. Therefore, we do not claim it is a proper solution for compliance with federal law 18 U.S.C. 2257. According to federal law, producers of a "visual depiction of an actual human being engaged in actual sexually explicit conduct” must display a Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement on every webpage that contains depictions, but can be in a "separate window that opens upon the viewer's clicking or mousing-over a hypertext link that states, '18 U.S.C. 2257 [and/or 2257A, as appropriate] Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement.’" In other-words, a common solution is to display or link the statement globally so it is always available to visitors, or from specific pages.
