Child Pornography On the Internet: New Challenges Require New Ideas

Who ever would have imagined a medium being created allowing criminals to roam free anonymously. The Internet has transformed the distribution and manufacturing of child pornography into a high-tech, sophisticated criminal enterprise. The Internet is growing by millions of pages per day, and there are presently about 500 million users worldwide. It gives those who sexually abuse children the ability to make, view, store, and distribute images of the most horrific child abuse from the comfort of their own homes. Digital technology allows the synchronization of the production and distribution of child pornography (real time sexual abuse of children).
