Blocking access to child abuse material: The INTERPOL "Worst of"-list

(Press Release)
At the 2009 INTERPOL General Assembly, member countries voted unanimously to adopt a Resolution (AG-2009-RES-05) to limit the online distribution of child sexual abuse images. The Resolution encourages member countries to promote the use of all the technical tools available, including access blocking of websites containing child sexual abuse images. INTERPOL is tasked with leading this work and providing a list of domains containing the websites that disseminate the most severe child abuse material worldwide. IPSG will work in tandem with international police forces in the construction of this "Worst of"-list of domains.
