Our Mission

The primary goal of AdultInternetLaw.com is to provide you with the legal advice you need. We want to make sure you are positioned to maximize the potential of your adult business while guarding against unnecessary risk. To accomplish this, you need to avoid many of the pitfalls that come with inexperience. We help you with this in a number of ways.

Initially, we want you to ask all of the questions you have about doing business in the adult industry. To facilitate this, we typically charge you a flat fee to handle your particular matter. This allows you to ask all the questions you have without worrying about running up your legal fees.

Second, you will be given the opportunity to network with our other clients. This opportunity is optional for all of our clients, but does present you with the opportunity to meet successful traffic drivers, content producers, affiliate sites, designers, accountants and more. Many of our clients have formed very profitable relationships through this service.

Finally, we want you to succeed in this amazing industry. We view our role as one in which we keep you out of trouble and create an atmosphere where you can feel comfortable discussing any issue. Many of our clients comment on the fact that we do not "act like lawyers." Don't be shy or worry about talking to us about your site or content ideas. We have seen it all. If we think you are crossing the line with some avenue of business, we will simply tell you because we do not want you to run afoul of the law. We will never judge you. If you are looking for a lawyer to "tsk, tsk" you, this is the wrong site.

Feel free to browse the site. We promise there are no pop-ups or annoying exit consoles! We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with your adult business. Please also feel welcome to visit our sister site, XXXLAW.COM, where you will find tremendous resources and articles concerning the law of freedom of speech, obscenity, Section 2257, trademark, the law of publicity, and many other areas that will be important to you - a site that also explains both the inherent risks and opportunities in the Adult Online world.

Online Internet Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Speech in Expression, and Freedom of the Press are the foundation of a free society: To support the right of free expression of unpopular and repressed content is to assure the security of a free society; To ignore the repression of unpopular and repressed messages and to fail to work for its protection assures the eventual destruction of a free society and the Liberty which nourishes and preserves it. We believe that Internet Free Speech is the forward edge of the battle area in preserving Liberty in American Society. As Benjamin Franklin noted during the generation of the Founders, those that would sacrifice essential Liberty for temporary security deserve neither Liberty nor security.
