HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — XBIZ LA officially concluded with the Free Speech Coalition’s annual membership meeting Thursday morning.

For the first time, the FSC offered legal roundtables on an array of issues that the adult industry trade organization is involved with and how it pertains to adult businesses.

After a short introduction about the inaugural format, as well as the introduction of the newest FSC board member Christian Mann, the roundtable started.

Attorneys familiar with general litigation, anti-piracy issues, FSC’s 2257 litigation against the U.S. government and Cal-OSHA issues as it relates to adult performers and production crew met with participants who peppered them with questions.

Industry attorneys Michael Fattorosi, Gill Sperlein, Jeffrey Douglas, Clyde Dewitt answered specific questions from attendees.

Joanne Cachapero, the FSC’s membership director, said that the group "wanted to use a networking roundtable format so that XBIZ attendees and FSC members could be informed on the work that FSC is doing right now, like the Anti-Piracy Action Program. Also, we chose workplace safety and 2257 as topics because those are current issues confronting the industry."

“The atmosphere is more casual than what we typically do at a Membership Meeting, but a great way for participants to get information. Also, we would like to thank XBIZ and XBIZ founder and FSC Board member Alec Helmy for the opportunity to meet with members, and congratulate XBIZ on a great conference.”

Earlier in the week at XBIZ LA, the FSC launched a new anti-piracy initiative. The group mapped out its eight-step Anti-Piracy Action Program (A-PAP) and detailed the comprehensive efforts of its new system’s software partner, Vobile.

According to the FSC, content producers now will have a way to monetize their pirated content through the Vobile software program that will provide a revenue-share opportunity similar to an affiliate program.

The eight-step program includes: 1) copyright registration of content; 2) indemnifying the infringing sites; 3) take-down notices; 4) statistics monitoring; 5) site content monetization; 6) litigation coordination; 7) research, education and outreach; and 8) anti-piracy branding.

Using the Vobile software package, producers can track infringing sites and determine what content they’ve pirated and other important data in order to issue take-down notices and for possible litigation.

Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures, Digital Playground, Titan Media and Adam & Eve already are on board with A-PAP.

The A-PAP cost for producers is $450 and must be members of the FSC.
