Below is a summary of rules you need to follow if you want to have an account on this server of Mastodon:
Terms of Service
Do not post real life sexual content.
Do not repost art that you did not draw yourself or commission.
Do not advocate for real life illegal action.
*Subject to US laws where this node is hosted.
- Since 2002, Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition established that two overbroad provisions of the CPPA of 1996 was struck down by the US Supreme Court because they abridged "the freedom to engage in a substantial amount of lawful speech."
- The Court found the CPPA to have no support in Ferber since the CPPA prohibits speech that records no crime and creates no victims by its production.
- Furthermore, district court Judge James E. Gritzner ruled in United States v. Handley that two parts of the PROTECT Act of 2003 criminalizing "a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture, or painting" was unconstitutional.
Although there is a focus on creators of uncensored art, registration is open to everyone. It is advisable to mark NSFW uploads for sensitive content as a courtesy to others, but is required specifically for guro or explicit gore content.
