Internet Service Providers say No to Child Porn

No to Child Porn

Child Pornography has been floating around the internet for quite a while and attempts to curb this menace have gone invain. Finally Major Internet service providers now come together in unison to put a stop to this perilous disease that is ruining the internet environment.

Verizon, Time Warner Cable and Sprint have joined hands with Cuomo to block access to child pornography. Tackling such sites and blocking them is a Herculean task, but these 3 ISP giants are determined to curb the child pornography sites and clean the internet zone as soon as they can. Verizon, Time Warner Cable and Sprint have also agreed to pay a total of $1.125 million to support the activities of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which maintains an updated registry of Websites that exploit children.

Child pornography sites are similar to cancer cells, if one site is shut one more is opened up. Thus this makes it much harder to take control over such sites. Cuomo’s investigators found more than 11,000 images in the newsgroups with the help of a special software that identifies child pornography by tracking patterns in the pixels of the images.

“They are very inventive and obviously a lot of this industry moves offshore very quickly,” said Professor Christine Corcos of the Louisiana State University Law Center. “As long as the people who produce this material think they have markets, and they think they can reach that market, they are going to continue and the thing is they can just move to other countries.”

The ISPs have chalked out a plan to block the sites that deal with child-pornography and they will also block websites identified by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. The three Internet Service Providers are ready to take this huge leap towards anti-child-porn and march forward bravely with gleaming hopes of putting a stop to the ill virus that has deteriorated the pureness of the internet.
