"Children, including a baby, were sexually molested while others in a private Internet chat room watched, U.S. and Canadian law enforcement officers said Wednesday in announcing the bust of an international child pornography ring. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales called the trading of graphic images and transmitting of live sexual molestation the "worst imaginable form of child pornography." Twenty-seven people from nine U.S. states and Canada, Australia and Britain have been charged with possession, receipt, distribution and manufacture of child pornography. Thirteen have been indicted in the USA and 14 abroad. All have been arrested except one, who is now considered a fugitive... Pornography has become a multibillion-dollar enterprise and is among the fastest growing businesses on the Internet... Eighteen prominent banks, credit card companies and Internet service providers joined Allen Wednesday in launching the new Financial Coalition Against Child Pornography. Among them: American Express, Chase, Citigroup, MasterCard, Visa, Bank of America, Microsoft, PayPal and Yahoo. "If people were purchasing heroin or cocaine and using their credit cards, we would be outraged and do something about it. This is worse, " said Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., chairman of the Senate's banking committee and a founding organizer of the coalition. The coalition aims to end commercial child pornography by 2008. It will work with the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the European Federation for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children and other groups to disrupt the online purchasing of child pornography."

As Child Porn Industry Grows, Coalition Launches Counterattack
- http://www.informati...cleID=183700580
March 17, 2006
"Internet technology and E-commerce helped transform the small, seamy back-alley business of peddling child pornography into a global, $20 billion-a-year criminal enterprise. To fight smut peddlers, a coalition of law enforcement agencies, financial services companies, and child protection groups last week launched a campaign to stem the flow of cash to the criminals behind the problem... The problem is getting worse as criminals find new ways to use technology to peddle their filth. The international ring busted last week traded videos, including live streaming abuse of toddlers via peer-to-peer and instant messaging. And police in Connecticut and Houston said the sexual predators they arrested earlier this month used the MySpace.com social networking site to lure teenagers. Exploiting the Internetís perceived anonymity, nearly a quarter million Web sites are involved in child pornography, and the take could grow to $30 billion in five years, authorities say. Credit card transactions make up the bulk of the business, so having leading financial services companies involved in the new group is critical. The Financial Coalition Against Child Pornography includes credit card companies, banks, and Internet companies that will work with law enforcement and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The idea came from Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, after he learned that some of the money paid for child porn ends up in the hands of international crime groups like the Russian Mafia... Cooperative efforts can pay off. An international task force got help from companies such as MasterCard, Morgan Stanley, and Visa when it brought down a $1 million-a-month Belarusian operation called Regpay in late 2004 that ran child porn Web sites. The result: 1,400 people have been arrested. Businesses can do their part by using IT systems that monitor and block access to porno sites and reporting illegal activities. The Internet may have made child porn a growth industry, but a strong joint effort can halt that dead in its tracks."

"...The fact that child pornography is a topic nobody likes to discuss helps feed the pornographers' need for secrecy... we think it's time the world started talking about how our children are being abused, violated, and betrayed... raise awareness and combat the epidemic of child sexual exploitation..."

A society is best judged by how it treats its most vulnerable...
After all is invested in correctness, then how does it stand with truth?

MySpace Lures Microsoft Exec To Become CSO
- http://www.informati...cleID=185300508
April 12, 2006
"Stung by attention from pedophiles and the media, online community site MySpace said Tuesday that Hemanshu Nigam will be joining the company as chief security officer on May 1. Nigam is currently the director of consumer security outreach and child safe computing at Microsoft. The move follows a number of high-profile cases highlighting online dangers to children, some of which involved MySpace.com. In early March, the FBI arrested two men in unrelated cases that prosecutors say represent the first federal sexual assault charges related to the use of the social networking site. Other cases involved the creation of a fake MySpace profile that led to the arrest of an alleged sexual predator, and online threats of violence posted on MySpace against a middle school student. Nigam appears to have the requisite experience to deal with such problems: Prior to positions at Microsoft and the Motion Picture Association of America, he served as a trial attorney in the Criminal Division of the United States Department of Justice, where he specialized in cases involving child pornography, child predators, child trafficking, and computer crime..."

Suspects arrested in global child porn raid
- http://tinyurl.com/j7sv5
May 10, 2006
"AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Police in 12 European Union countries and the United States searched more than 150 houses and arrested several people suspected of being involved in child pornography, the European police agency said on Wednesday. The operation, codenamed "Baleno", is the result of a worldwide investigation led by the Dutch National Police Agency, Europol said in a statement. The Dutch police provided initial intelligence to 76 countries related to an Internet message board whose members' activities included possession and distribution of child abuse material, the statement said. The network used sophisticated techniques to hide members' electronic identities and to post encrypted content for a short period of time on free Web services. "Today's arrests and house searches are an important action against those who either directly or indirectly are responsible for the sexual exploitation of children," Europol Director Max-Peter Ratzel said in the statement. "The next step in the investigation will be to try to prove the link between the illegal content and the active abuse." Europol did not say how many people were arrested nor in which countries. Raids were carried out in Austria, Belgium, Estonia, France, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden, it said. The investigation in the United States was led by the FBI.
In June last year, police in 13 European countries raided 150 locations in another child pornography crackdown, seizing computers, videos and other material and made some arrests."

Financial firms attack child porn
- http://www.usatoday....ne_x.htm?csp=15
5/26/2006
"The nation's leading banks and credit card companies will soon team with law enforcement in a groundbreaking coalition to catch people who sell child pornography online. The financial institutions will report child porn sites they discover on the Web to a central tip line, slated to expand next month to receive the information. The companies will block transactions for online child porn or, if law enforcement opens an investigation, help track sellers and buyers. The Financial Coalition Against Child Pornography represents a new phase in the war against what has become a multibillion-dollar, international business. Internet service providers, including AOL, already report child porn sites they find..."
