The models, actresses and other persons that appear in any visual depiction appearing or otherwise contained in this Website (MET-ART.com) were over the age of eighteen (18) years at the time of the creation of such. MET-Art hereby certifies that this website, and all graphic images associated therewith, is EXEMPT from both the recordkeeping and labeling requirements of 18 U.S.C. § 2257, because no images of "actual sexually explicit conduct" are contained within. All images were recorded prior to the effective date of the amendments to 18 U.S.C. § 2257, pursuant to HR 4472. All photographers / producers are required to submit proper documents of the model, stating that her age is over 18, when submitting photos, and movies to MET-ART.
The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Douglas By: Jeffrey J. Douglas Jeffrey J. Douglas SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA 90401-3319 An additional general statement regarding the site, and his credentials drafted by Mr.Douglas:
I am criminal defense attorney emphasizing First Amendment defense. I am an expert witness on behalf of the Free Speech Coalition in its challenge to 18 USC 2257 and have testified as an expert in Federal Court on 2257 in matters unrelated to a 2257 challenge. In addition, in my private practice, I have advised scores of clients on the application of 2257 to their businesses and developed compliance models. I am the Chair of the Board of the FSC, and along with Reed Lee (a distinguished Chicago First Amendment Attorney) manage the 2257 litigation legal team. Also, as long as I am credentialing myself, I am also the former President of the First Amendment Lawyers Association, currently, Chairman Emeritus. MET-Art is full and complete compliance with 18 U.S.C. 2257. That is, we maintain all records establishing that all models are 18 years old or older. However, because 18 U.S.C. 2257 on its terms is limited to images containing actual sexually explicit conduct, and MET-Art does not depict actually sexually explicit conduct, MET-Art is exempt from any obligation under 2257. However, I emphasize that we do maintain proof adequate under 2257 that all models are eighteen years of age or older at the time of the recording of the images.
