Pornography, Extreme Pornography&Indecent Images/videos of Children
Online porn is a huge industry (as the table on the right shows). It is a complicated industry that lately sees important changes, especially with the advent of "tube" type websites. Based on the concept of YouTube, there are numerous of open websites, where amateurs can post their own sex videos. This has created a series of problems, most important of which is the posting of videos without the consent of all participants.
Although the adult industry is somewhat regulated in the western world, it is not so much in Asia and Africa. There lies the problem of what is being filmed. Porn is generally legal, when watched by an adult when the participants are adults. However some jurisdictions (like Scotland) have criminalized what is called "extreme pornography". This includes scenes of rape, sex with animals and dead people.
Child pornography is one of the main burdens of police forces around the world. It is reported that in the UK, the electronic crime units spend more than 80% of their time and resources on child pornography. With backlogs that may go up to one year, this creates another additional problem on the quality of the investigations and the serving of justice.
