What Is USC 2257? It is the new law that states that every producer and secondary producer that puts out anything with "adult" content must have complete records on all their models that date back all the way to 1995! More than that, they have to be kept in a specific order, cross-indexed a specific way, and have very specific information. And deviation, even something as minor as a type-o in a models stage name can mean prison time! No body is happy
