Parliament passes a law aimed at fighting child pornography
The Internet Association of Ukraine had earlier criticized this draft law for not-complying with European and international standards, and because of the technical impossibility of implementing its processions.
The Law ““On amendments to some legislative acts (on countering the spread of child pornography) is supposed to heighten measures combating the preparation, sale and circulation of child pornography and involving children in the preparation of such material.
As reported already, the law contains an addition to the Law on Telecommunications stating that “operators and telecommunication providers shall restrict the access of their customers to resources which spread unlawful information content in accordance with a court order.”
It also makes changes to the Law on the Protection of Public Morality and the Criminal Code. The latter establishes liability for circulating of products of a pornographic nature, created with the participation of a child or use of a child’s picture, including with the use of information telecommunication systems and involving minors in the production of pornography.
