The paper considers the impact of cybercrime on the rise in consumption and creation
of child pornography content, it considers the legislative efforts made on an international and
national level to cope with this new phenomenon and enable proper prosecution of such crimes.
Cyberspace and the development of emerging technologies has come to pose a threat to the
current established criminal justice system. It has enabled and facilitated the commission of
strictly regulated crimes on a terrestrial level. As a result of these developments child
pornography has witnessed a major increase. This paper analyses the current inefficiencies in
legislations on a national level by looking at the USA and on an international level considering
the United Nations and European Union. It identifies a lack of adaptation of existing criminal
law to the phenomenon of cyber-crime as well as the clash between the complexity and
transnational nature of cybercrime against the slow-moving process that is legislation.
Furthermore, it considers the possible solution to speeding up and improving current
legislation, through the creation of a branch organization to the United Nations. An
organization devoted only to the issue of child pornography and exploitation as a cybercrime.
This organization would be made up of lawmakers but also technological experts, in order to
have a proper grasp on what exactly is needed in order for these crimes to be properly regulated.
