XBIZ Miami - June 1-4

CHATSWORTH, Calif. — One week after the first record-keeping inspection over 18 U.S.C. §2257, Diabolic owner Greg Allen is confident his material would stand the test of another probe, which could come as early as in another four months.

“Sure, the cost is substantial, but I see it as just a cost of doing business,” Allen told XBIZ on Monday. “I am taking this matter very seriously.”

Rules requiring record keeping for content depicting actual sexual acts have been in place since Nov. 18, 1988. However, until last Monday, no adult companies had been subject to inspections.

In 2004, then-Attorney General John Ashcroft called for an expansion of the requirements to extend to secondary producers. The new rules officially went into effect June 23, 2005, but the FSC secured an injunction against enforcement on behalf of members. The injunction remains in force.

Allen said that it was a smart business decision earlier this year to get all his ducks in a row when it came to 2257 records. And, he counts on another inspection — which agents told him could possibly occur in four months.

“I have a full-time employee working on the records alone, and I also use KeepSafe, a company that computerizes all of our records,” Allen said.

The FBI continued 2257 inspections Friday when it visited amateur gay producer Sebastian Sloane Productions in Bethlehem, Pa.

Like Diabolic, the company passed inspection and was given the thumbs-up by government agents.

Allen pointed out, however, that there was a silver lining to last Monday’s inspection, which specifically targeted 23 Diabolic videos and nearly 200 performers.

“The true benefit is that we got to pick [the FBI’s] brain,” Allen said, “and I hope that it helps the adult industry as a whole.”
