AUSTIN, Texas — The South by Southwest Interactive Festival will hold a discussion of federal regulations governing explicit materials produced for public distribution on Saturday.

The discussion, entitled “The Porn Police: Know the Rules,” will touch on the 18 U.S.C. 2257 and 2257A record-keeping regulations, considerations for online access and distribution of materials and resources for additional information and advocacy support.

"Not just pornographers, but anyone creating and working with explicit imagery of even simulated sexual conduct — bloggers, webmasters, narrative filmmakers, documentarians — needs to know the rules and the risks," a festival representative said.

Scheduled panelists are CineKink cofounder and director Lisa Vandever, production company Comstock Films' Tony Comstock, sex writer Violet Blue, filmmaker Joe Swanberg and entertainment attorney Alan Levy.

The panel is set for Saturday afternoon from 5-6 p.m. in room 12AB of the Austin Convention Center. For more information, visit the panel website or the SXSW Interactive website
