People v. Eames, 3274/2009, Supreme Court, New York County (Feb. 3, 2010)
Internet Service Providers are not “arm of law enforcement” when they forward detected child pornography to National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The Dartmouth: “PhotoDNA, a new child-pornography tracking technology developed in part by Dartmouth computer science professor Hany Farid, may soon enable Internet service providers to better curb the availability of online images depicting child pornography. The technology was donated to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in December.”
NCMEC: “Sexting is a term intended to define a specific type of activity involving youth, sexually explicit photos or text, and electronic devices that take and transmit photos. The media has reported instances where children have been charged with a violation of child pornography laws for self-producing and/or distributing these photos.”
