Child pornography is undoubtedly one of the principal threats to child protection in the digital sphere. Although such material existed before the days of the internet, the growth in information and communication technology (ICT) has led to an explosion in the number of images accessible. The law in this area dates backs over 25 years, and thus legitimate questions could be raised as to whether it remains an effective tool. This article seeks to explore some questions in respect of the application of the current law and demonstrates a need to rethink certain aspects of it.
