File Sharing: What it is and why it can lead to criminal charges related to Child Pornography
Federal & State law prohibits the possession of child pornography. In addition, the laws absolutely prohibit the distribution of any pictures. Current file sharing programs that allow the use of remote connected computers to act as pier-to-pier networks which distribute child pornography over the internet create a means of distribution of child pornography. If anyone has downloaded ‘free’ programs, such as KAZA, or LIMEWIRE, with the intentions of downloading music or adult porn, but also download child pornography, they will be subject to criminal charges.
