  Extreme Victimhood...

Victim of bad law, computer scammers and his own stupidity
Link Here
HM Courts Service A man who downloaded extreme porn featuring animals foolishly handed himself into police after falling victim to a computer scam.

Victor Noble fell victim to computer hackers impersonating police who remotely locked his computer and demands a fee for it to be unlocked. The scammers blanked the screen and put in place an image supposedly referring to a police force, suggesting the user had been visiting illegal sites and that he should pay a fee for his computer to be unlocked.

Noble foolishly paid the £100 requested but the computer stayed locked. He then stupidly decided to go to the police. About 600 images of an extreme pornographic nature were discovered.

Noble admitted five counts of possessing extreme pornography.  He was made the subject of a community order, in which he will be supervised for a year.

  Repair Shop Stazi...

o2 logo Dawn Love fell victim to repair shop Stazi who reported pornographic images of people having sex with horses and dogs when she took her phone into an 02 shop to be repaired. When police searched her car they also found a DVD showing someone having sex with a dog.

Judge Christopher Critchlow opted not to send her to prison for her own safety after James Bloomer, defneding, pointed to psychiatric reports which said Love was at a high risk of killing herself if she was sent to prison.

Bloomer stressed that only two images - albeit showing brutal bestiality - had been found in Love's possession, and despite having convictions for other offences, she had no previous history of sexual offences.

A jury found Love guilty of possessing extreme porn earlier this year after a trial at Guildford Crown Court.

Sentencing her to a nine month jail term, suspended for two years, with a 12-month supervision order, Judge Critchlow said he had taken into account the dangerous effect jail could have on vulnerable Love. Judge Critchlow also ordered Love to hand over the phone and pay a £100 fine.

  9 counts of adult censorship...

IWF publishes its Annual Report for 2014
Link Here
iwf annual report 2014 The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) does some sterling work in restricting child abuse material on the internet. In its latest Annual Report, the IWF outlines its extension of its operations to seek out child porn rather than just respond to reports received.

Unfortunately the IWF also has a role as an internet censor of adult pornography which is deemed to be criminally obscene. The IWF generally plays down the role, as it would surely prefer to stick to more commendable areas of work, but nevertheless, reports on its adult censorship activity:

Other Criminal Content

3,016 reports alleged criminally obscene adult content. However, almost all were not hosted within the UK and therefore not within the IWF's remit.

9 were assessed as criminally obscene and hosted in the UK. In each case we worked with the police to obtain their agreement with the assessment and approval for removing the content. We then contacted the website owner to remove the content.

 Update: Up Shit Creek...

Japanese vagina kayak artist appears in court on a ludicrous obscenity charge
Link Here  full story: Censorship in Japan...Japan's ban on the display of genitals in art and films
megumi igarashi kayak A Japanese artist who made a kayak modelled on her vagina has denied obscenity charges at the start of her trial in a case demonstrating Japanese censorship and double standards.

Megumi Igarashi, who calls herself Rokudenashiko,  was first arrested last July after distributing 3D scans of her genitalia to people in return for donations to her project to create the unusual kayak.

She was released days later following a public campaign supporting her right to freedom of expression. She was rearrested in December , however, and charged with obscenity.

The artist told the Tokyo district court that her vagina selfies were not obscene. I do not dispute the facts [of the charge], but my artwork is not obscene, Igarashi said.

Igarashi said she had sent the data to people who had donated more than 3,000 yen to the kayak project. She said she was prepared to take her case all the way to Japan's supreme court if necessary.

  Criminal Injustice and Courts Act 2015...

Dangerous Pictures Act extended to include the pornographic depiction of rape
Link Here
arms of the british governmentjpg logo The extension of the Dangerous Pictures Act to include the pornographic depiction of rape or non consensual penetration has come into force.

The Criminal Injustice and Courts Act 2015 amends the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 to add the depiction of rape to the list of content already banned.

The relevant section defining the new category of porn that is illegal to posses is:

37 Possession of pornographic images of rape and assault by penetration

(1) Part 5 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 is amended as follows.

(2) In section 63 (possession of extreme pornographic images)—

(a) after subsection (5) insert—

“(5A) In relation to possession of an image in England and Wales, an “extreme image” is an image which—

(a) falls within subsection (7) or (7A), and
(b) is grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene character.”,

(c) after subsection (7) insert—

“(7A) An image falls within this subsection if it portrays, in an explicit and realistic way, either of the following—

(a) an act which involves the non-consensual penetration of a person’s vagina, anus or mouth by another with the other person’s penis, or
(b) an act which involves the non-consensual sexual penetration of a person’s vagina or anus by another with a part of the other person’s body or anything else,
and a reasonable person looking at the image would think that the persons were real.

(7B) For the purposes of subsection (7A)—

(a) penetration is a continuing act from entry to withdrawal;
(b) “vagina” includes vulva.”

Also people who share sexual images without consent can be jailed for up to two years under the new law that came into effect in the UK on 13th April 2015. The Crown Prosecution Service said:

The law covers images that show the genitals but also anything that a reasonable person would consider to be sexual, so this could be a picture of someone who is engaged in sexual behaviour or posing in a sexually provocative way.

It is an offence for a person to disclose a private sexual photograph or film if the disclosure is made (a) without the consent of an individual who appears in the photograph or film, and (b) with the intention of causing that individual distress.
