The Digital Economy: Potential, Perils, and Promises

Date

07 Mar 2014

This report states that child pornography and sexual exploitation industries, in particular, are moving outside of traditional economic mechanisms and into the shadows of the digital world. This report contains recommendations that might lead to a worldwide policy debate of the digital economy. The report further states that "Sextortion" cases are on the rise, involving exploitation in which an attacker will threaten to make public compromising images of the victim unless they are supplied with more images, videos, or occasionally even payment.
