Search 18 U.S.C. § 1466 : US Code - Section 1466: Engaging in the business of selling or transferring obscene matter
(a) Whoever is engaged in the business of selling or transferring
obscene matter, who knowingly receives or possesses with intent to
distribute any obscene book, magazine, picture, paper, film,
videotape, or phonograph or other audio recording, which has been
shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, shall be
punished by imprisonment for not more than 5 years or by a fine
under this title, or both.
(b) As used in this section, the term "engaged in the business"
means that the person who sells or transfers or offers to sell or
transfer obscene matter devotes time, attention, or labor to such
activities, as a regular course of trade or business, with the
objective of earning a profit, although it is not necessary that
the person make a profit or that the selling or transferring or
offering to sell or transfer such material be the person's sole or
principal business or source of income. The offering for sale of or
to transfer, at one time, two or more copies of any obscene
publication, or two or more of any obscene article, or a combined
total of five or more such publications and articles, shall create
a rebuttable presumption that the person so offering them is
"engaged in the business" as defined in this subsection.
