I am addressing this very seriously to EVERY lawyer with legal expertise in copyright infringement and fair use, and I'm also addressing this to any lawyer well-versed in the legal statutes on internet child pornography.

As I'm sure many of you already know, pornish_pixies was permanently deleted today by Livejournal.com, along with a number of other communities with "incest" as an interest, an incomplete list of which is here.

Straight up, people. What are our options as a fandom to fight this? What are all our options to fight this, and how can we as a fandom collectively work to deal with Six Apart in this issue?

Please respond, because I really, really want to get started on the part where the fandom rallies together to make our voices heard by Six Apart.

As someone who runs a fiction community which does not contain any objectionable interests in our user interests, I'm still worried because the community includes adult content that sometimes involves illegal activity.

What I'm wondering is, will posting a disclaimer conforming to LJ Abuse's stipulations (stating that the comm doesn't endorse or approve of any illegal activity and that posting creative content or textual discussion of such things should not be held as endorsement, etc.) to the community offer any protection in the event the community is targeted? My fear is the argument offered by LJ Abuse that they had to delete those accounts without review or warning and that's the end of it. If a complaint is sent in about the community would the disclaimer act as a prophylactic the complaint?
