In the aftermath of the recent decision from the Court of Appeals of New York in People v. Kent (summary here), there's been a large amount of interesting commentary - both legal and popular. Here are a few of the best:
- Law.com's article, "Judicial Misunderstanding of Technology and Child Pornography," criticizes the decision which has "potentially given a 'free pass' to those who 'merely view' child pornography on the internet."
- The New York Criminal Defense blog's post on Kent has an interesting section discussing what defendants must know about how cache works before they can be prosecuted.
- The Daily Mail (UK) wrote a piece discussing the ethical issues behind child pornography and whether the harm has already been done once the images are created.
