Constitutional challenge to impossibly vague German law

Barely Legal magazine Hustler Europe has filed a constitutional complaint against a newly enacted section of German law that criminalizes sales and distribution of content depicting adult actors who show a youthful appearance.

The new law, section 184c of the German criminal code, went in effect November 5. It immediately affects the Barely Legal series produced by Larry Flynt Publications' company in Europe.

In the complaint filed with the Federal Constitutional Court, Hustler Europe alleges the law violates constitutionally protected rights to freedoms of opinion, occupation and property. It is asking the court to suspend the provision until it reaches a final decision.

The Federal Constitutional Court will have to check whether §184c Criminal Code violates the constitutionally guaranteed freedom rights, Marko Dörre, Hustler Europe's attorney, said. We demand clear regulations for more legal certainty.

Hustler Europe Managing Director Helen Clyne told XBIZ it was ultimately about more than the affect on Barely Legal , a popular series both in the U.S. and in Europe.

Until the court rules, Hustler Europe is barred from distributing Barely Legal , Not the Brady XXX series and This Ain't the Munsters XXX.

Politicians wound up by adult porn suggesting younger

Barely Legal magazine More from the recent Australian Senate Estimates hearings. This time the full line up of pro-censorship loons, Joyce, McGauran, Barnett, and Fierravnti-Wells, waited in line to quiz the Classification Board.

Topics covered include the adult magazine ratings, community liaison officers, the classification of Art Monthly, the lack of an R18+ rating for games, and legal challenges to decisions of the Classification Board.

Particularly interesting is that Australian nutters are taking up a moral stance against the likes of Barely Legal, ie porn mags featuring young looking adults.

Danish blocking lists contains sites with US 2257 record keeping compliance legal notices

Denmark flagAccording to Wikileaks the recently leaked Danish website blocking list is compiled by the Danish police and the Save The Children group and is supposed to contain child pornography.

It has already been determined by a poster at Somebody Think of the Children that the list also includes a website for a Dutch trucking company - vanbokhorst.nl.

However, it  can now be confirmed that the list also contains several LEGAL pornographic sites.

USC 2257 is the US legal compliance notice that all US porn sites are required to display.

Using Google to search for "USC 2257" reveals that the very first site on the list contains the US statement providing age confirmation and contact details for the authorities to verify the records. And indeed the site appears to be legal and legitimate.

The suggestion is that the Danish Authorities may be extending their banning remit to include such material as Hustlers Barely Legal.
