Abstract:

Rapidly evolving and converging information and communication technologies have made the Internet a platform for the dissimulation and dissemination of child pornography at the global level. This article compares and contrasts the regulation of online child pornography under European Union and American law. Under European Union law, online child pornography is regulated as illegal material that violates human rights. In the United States, online child pornography and computer-generated child pornography is material that is regulated within the ambit of the niceties of “speech” under First Amendment. The result is that the European Union’s content-based framework criminalizes all child pornography–real or computer-generated–while the United States criminalizes only child pornography featuring real children. The controversial United States Supreme Court ruling in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, which decriminalized computer-generated child pornography, coupled with the failure of the United States to accede to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, makes the country the weakest link in international efforts to eradicate online child pornography.
