I’m very curious what people think of this:
In summary, it’s about police cracking down on “virtual” child abuse, i.e. having computer generated images of child porn, etc, and even having virtual sex with underage, erm… animations.
Here are a few extracts:
Now, don’t get me wrong. I think these guys must be sick bastards and (not that I’m an expert or anything) it’s quite possible that they also do other stuff, like share real child porn. In fact that’s even mentioned in the story. But my question is this… what do people think about people getting imprisoned for having “virtual” child porn? Remember that it seems to be perfectly OK to kill people online. And, one more thing, surely a lot of hentai images would fall under this category, would they not?
Like I say, I’m just curious. I’m not even 100% sure how I feel about it. I do think it opens up a lot of questions about policing virtual worlds in the future.
