Porn Production Laws In Florida

A Simple Guide To Complying With Florida and Federal Porn Laws

 

I am asked at least once a week: Is it legal to film porn in Florida?

My response normally surprises new clients – Where are you located in Florida? The correct legal answer must take into account in what geographic area you are conducting business. Law enforcement looks at porn production legality differently in different parts of the State of Florida. So, it is best for the novice NOT TO ASSUME anything when it comes to the legality of producing “porn,” or adult content. Always check with a qualified adult entertainment attorney prior to filming, or planning production.

The real questions you need to ask is: How do I set up a Adult Business Company that is legal in all fifty States. Keep reading this blog as we will be discussing this issue over the next couple of months. When you’re ready to get started give us a call at 1-888-418-3858

Welcome everyone this is Adult Film Attorney A.J. Comparetto and today we will be talking about is it legal to go ahead and produce porn in Florida and that’s a question that I get asked constantly.

Can we go ahead and produce in the state and what are the rules related to that in the first thing they were going to keep even before we get to the Florida rules there’s also Federal rules. The Federal government does not like pornography and has set up a structure to regulate adult porn production.

So you must always comply with the 18 U.S.C. 2257 laws.

Now getting to the issue of producing porn in Florida. It’s interesting because recently I just did a seminar for the Florida bar entertainment law committee on this and asking attorneys out there most thought it was legal because they saw it on their computer or cable TV but even most attorneys could really say whether it was legal or not.
Now I tell people – Yes, you can produce non-obscene porn in Florida. The main point is it cannot be obscene porn. So you must understand what the Florida obscenity laws are before you start filming and the difference between legal porn and obscene illegal porn.

There’s two things that we look at here.

One, It is a matter of context

And

Two, you must understand what’s on the government’s radar screen. So when I say what is government ‘s radar screen in producing porn in Florida your local law enforcement really is the fact where you can produce it in the state of Florida it is truly, dictated by where you live.

If you live in real conservative area, you may not be able to produce porn. Here is an example: If you live in Miami, Tampa, Orlando, all the major metropolitan law enforcement agencies don’t really seem to care about porn as long as you don’t do it with minors or in public. If you live in Polk County and I use as an example because we have a sheriff there who loves get on TV and he loves going against adult producers of the website or anything related to adult.

So one of the most important things is when you’re going ahead and started telephone companies to sit down and speak with an adult film attorney who understands the lay of the land and where it is safe to produce adult content.
