In fulfilling its obligations under 18 U.S.C. 2257 with respect to content submitted by third party users/members, Fetster.com relies on the plain language of the statute and on the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Sundance Associates, Inc. v. Reno, 139 F.3d 804, 808 (10th Cir 1998), which held that entities which have no role in the "hiring, contracting for, managing, or otherwise arranging for the participation" of the models or performers, are exempt from the record-keeping requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2257.
