BDE is still around?

Wow. These are the same guys that ran afoul of the law themselves by partnering with Kazaa and launching their own P2P ad serving network bundled with Kazaa. I would have thought they'd be flat broke by now. Their penny stock is trading at $0.03 a share though if anyone wants to place a long shot bet.....

As the article points out, most Torrent sites apparently do a good job of keeping things like kiddie porn off of their sites.

If BDE is involved I suspect the packet inspection has a lot more to do with a plan to serve targeted ads rather than preventing any crimes.

IMO most Kiddie Porn that is transferred by BT is almost definitely done with private Torrent Sites not public ones (assuming that the same type of system that was used FTP to transfer porn is used with BT Transfers). This means that there are BT Sites (and Servers) that are only known to those who want/distribute kiddie porn and you get your .torrent files from there (after logging in) and thus the policing by the known Torrent Sites of what the content of the .torrent files that they list does no good.

The pirate bay carries a number of Child Porn website rips. All of which are based in Europe and Russia. Dress girls up in erotic clothing, swimsuits etc... Then they show off the private parts through the clothing. Here in Illinois, our supreme court ruled It's child porn by showing the genitalia of a minor through clothing intentionally.

A question and some comments.

Are the models actually underage or 18+ and DRESSING in Children's Clothing? If they are 18+ then it is (possibly) porn (depending on your definition of Porn) but not CHILD Porn.

Second, your Supreme Court seems to be defining Porn as Pictures showing Nudity and not just Sexual Activities. Thus a "baby on a rug picture" is Child Porn since the baby is not clothed even when s/he is on her/his stomach instead of back (where the genitalia is exposed not hidden).

When I say Underage I mean UNDERAGE! Were talking 12 year old girls. Even younger than 10 on some sites. I'll try and hunt down the ruling to be more specific as to the ruling. But these sites don't even use models 16 or up.

This is, IMO, a case of the Judge trying to do a Long Arm application of his local standards. Sites that are located out of his jurisdiction are a gray area if the content is legal in location of the site (and especially if it is a non-US site). For example, in certain areas of the Middle East it is supposedly illegal to have pictures of the a woman whose face is not covered (no matter what clothing she is wearing/not-wearing).
