XBIZ Summer '07 Forum 2257 Panel Footage Online Now

LOS ANGELES — Video coverage of the July 12 legal panel at the XBIZ Summer '07 Forum is online now. Panelists discussed the proposed new 2257 regulations — which had been posted in the Federal Register several hours earlier that day — as well as obscenity prosecutions and prosecutions under the CAN-SPAM act under the Bush administration.

"It's pretty much the whole panel," editor Chris Bertand told XBIZ. "We took out some chit-chat, and cut it at natural breaks, between speakers. There's important stuff in there about regulations, IDs and recordkeeping."

The panel took place at the XBIZ Summer '07 Forum at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Moderated by XBIZ Publisher Tom Hymes, the panel participants included Reed Lee, president of the 1st Amendment Lawyer’s Association ; Rob Apgood of the Seattle-based law firm Carpe Law; Lawrence Walters of Weston, Garrou DeWitt & Walters; Greg Piccionelli of the Los Angeles firm Piccionelli and Sarno; and Jeffrey Douglas, chairman of the Free Speech Coalition.
