CHATSWORTH, Calif. – The Free Speech Coalition received a $75,000 donation from the Anti-Censorship Defense Committee in support of its lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department and proposed amendments to federal Recordkeeping and Labeling Law, 18 U.S.C. 2257.

According to the terms of the donation, AC/DC will match every dollar donated against its maximum bid.

Michelle Freridge, executive director for the FSC, told XBiz that AC/DC’s contribution will cover more than 37 percent of the FSC's fund drive goal of $200,000 and has already encouraged more people to give money to the defense fund.

"Not only is AC/DC making the donation, but we can solicit people by saying 'for every dollar you donate, two dollars will go into the fight,'" Freridge said. "It makes people feel good about leveraging additional money because it will go twice as far."

So far, the FSC has raised $25,000 against the AC/DC donation from Marina Pacific, New Sensations, Broadcasting Concepts, Wicked Pictures and Caballero Home Video.

In November, FSC declared that it would be the official plaintiff in two lawsuits that will be filed by adult industry attorneys against the Justice Department as soon as the new proposed 2257 changes take effect. Among the attorneys that will be representing FSC – who reduced their fees and donated hours of work to the case so far – are Greg Piccionelli, Reed Lee and Jeffrey Douglas.

While the exact terms of the proposed regulations have not been fully released, the changes will more broadly target the Internet and, in doing so, could have a dire effect on adult entertainment businesses.

The lawsuits will be filed respectively through the law firms of Paul Cambria and H. Louis Sirkin.

In other news, the FSC's Annual Membership Meeting will be held on Jan. 6 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Six new board members will be announced by Freridge. The meeting begins at 10 a.m. in room 106.
