IWF - Illegal UK Internet Content Shrinks

Posted: 23rd Mar, 2004 By: MarkJ
The Internet Watch Foundation has praised ISPs for their help after the number of child abuse and related content on the Internet shrunk to less than 1%, which compares with 18% in 1997:

The IWF said that less than 1% of potentially illegal content was now hosted by internet service providers (ISPs) in the UK, while in Europe the figure was down from 18% to 6%.

By contrast, the body said more than half of the child abuse content was hosted in the US, while 23% was traced to Russia.

It means that the bulk of illegal material is now outside of the reach of the IWF and UK law enforcement agencies, which can only control material hosted in the Britain.


Sadly the IWF has also received a growth in complaints, nearing 20,000 during 2003, which is a rise of 9% over 2002. More @ BBC News Online.
