us: You and YouPorn are now free to make porn

In a major First Amendment victory, a federal court strikes down regulations covering anyone who produces adult images.Hallelujah! Haul out your 8 MM, put on some lounge music, get your partner — and maybe a gaffer, some stage hands, a caterer, a boom operator and your parents, who’ll be so proud — and get down! The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled that you are free to make your own porn. Believe it or not, this is a major First Amendment ruling, one for which much praise is due.The court struck down 18 U.S.C. 2257, a statute that Congress enacted in 1988 as part of an anti-child-porn law. It requires producers of “sexually-explicit” material (NSFW definition here) to maintain records on the ages and identities of their filmed performers.
