Law against Children Pornography in Germany

22. 04.09 –  A general law was issued in Germany prohibiting the internet use of children pornography by constraining all internet providers with more than 10 000 customers to restrict the  common access to a list of suspicious sites. This would make the access to  children pornography contents for interested customers more difficult but not impossible. Therefore the law contains a clause, stipulating penal action in cases of  deliberate outflanking the restriction.

A week ago family minister Ursula von der Leyen managed to negotiate a voluntary agreement with 5 of the leading internet providers with the same goal. Today’s  issue of the general law makes thus the agreement obsolete and constrains from now on all providers to stick to the ban.
