International Computer Database of Child Porn

Member nations of the G8 are working together to create an international database of photographs depicting child pornography.  Authorities from each country and other participating nations will enter copies of all known pictures of child pornography in their possession into the database.  Similar to existing databases involving DNA and fingerprints, when police find a photograph that they suspect involves a minor, they can enter it into the database.  If it matches a picture in the database, then the cops will know they have found child porn and can make an arrest.  Story from News.Telegraph . . .  [Mark Godsey]
