Regulation of Computer-generated virtual Child Pornography under American and French Jurisprudence: One Country’s Protected “Speech” is another’s Harmful Smut.
Unformatted Document Text:  Abstract This paper compared and contrasted the regulation of child pornography in the United States and France. It was found that both countries strictly regulate child pornography. Indeed, the laws of both countries were similar until United States Supreme Court rulings in Reno v. ACLU and Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, essentially made American law different from French law in terms of criminalization of certain aspects of child pornography. While France has tightened its child pornography laws considerably in recent years, the ruling in Ashcroft has given rise to potential conflict of laws when it comes to international action against child pornography. Furthermore there is a potential for producers of virtual child pornography around the world to move their virtual “wares” to servers in the United States because of this country’s greater protection of free speech, including virtual or computer-generated child pornography.

Abstract
This paper compared and contrasted the regulation of child pornography in the
United States and France. It was found that both countries strictly regulate child
pornography. Indeed, the laws of both countries were similar until United States
Supreme Court rulings in Reno v. ACLU and Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition,
essentially made American law different from French law in terms of
criminalization of certain aspects of child pornography. While France has
tightened its child pornography laws considerably in recent years, the ruling in
Ashcroft has given rise to potential conflict of laws when it comes to international
action against child pornography. Furthermore there is a potential for producers
of virtual child pornography around the world to move their virtual “wares” to
servers in the United States because of this country’s greater protection of free
speech, including virtual or computer-generated child pornography.
