A 14-year-old girl has been accused of child pornography for posting nearly 30 explicit nude pictures of herself on MySpace.
The charges could force the teenager from New Jersey, US, to register as a sex offender, if convicted.
Her arrest came as prosecutors across America pursue child pornography cases over kids sending naked photographs to one another by mobile phone and emails.
I'd like everyone to just re-read that last paragraph. There's your fight against child pornography in a nutshell. In Germany, it's raiding a man's house for the crime of hosting a domain name redirect to Wikileaks, in Finland it's censoring websites that criticize the police, and in the U.S. of A. it's suing teenagers who take pictures of themselves for producing child pornography.
Meanwhile, the law enforcement community is doing practically nothing about people who abuse children to make and distribute hardcore child pornography for money. For instance, the Finnish police only blocks actual child porn sites and doesn't even bother to inform the countries they're hosted in, but starts massive legal proceedings against a man who criticises them on the Internet.
Welcome to the world.
