ISPA Responds Online Child Porn
By: MarkJ - 12 January, 2004 (2:48 PM)

The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has responded to today's report into child porn, which blames the Internet for much of the increase:

the UK's Internet trade group, ISPA UK, has defended the industry's commitment to stamping out illegal material online; it insists that it has an "ongoing commitment to assisting agencies involved in the protection of children on the Internet".

"Were it not for the assistance the internet industry offers law enforcement agencies, the police would not have been as successful as they have been in arresting individuals who have been distributing or downloading images of child abuse," a spokesman told The Register.

He said the increase in the number of convictions and cautions that have been made since 1988 reflected the effective working relationship between the Internet industry and law enforcement agencies.
