    Abstract:'Online safety for children and adolescents as a policy issue finds itself in a turbulent arena: emerging new mobile and online technologies and applications carry opportunities and risks and constantly bring new challenges. This article explores particularly the field of adolescents and cybercrime against a background of a culture of control combined with an increasing use of new media by youngsters. Based on two particular cases, i.e. 'grooming'—a new development in criminal law where children and adolescents are treated as (potential) victims in need of protection—and 'sexting'—a new development in online risk-taking where adolescents are framed as (potential) offenders in need of repression—we argue that public policy with respect to adolescent behaviour and online risks is tilting towards more control. These developments in cybercrime policy that focus on criminal law as a policy instrument disturb the balance between the freedom of adolescents to develop into responsible and independent adults and controlling online risks. Other, more promising avenues, such as encouraging digital literacy of citizens and protecting those children who are particularly vulnerable, should rather be at the forefront of public policy.'

    Abstract:'Sexting can be a costly activity, particularly for teenagers. As more teenagers engage in sending sexually explicit images to one another, the likelihood of serious long-term consequences increases. When sexting is used as a means to bully, the potential severity of consequences also increases. In many jurisdictions, prosecutors may charge juveniles caught sexting with possession or distribution of child pornography. At the same time, some states have recognized the severity of such a charge and found other ways of addressing the teen sexting problem. This Comment addresses the current issues surrounding juvenile sexting by examining empirical data, legal responses, and legislative reactions. It argues that Washington’s current approach to juvenile sexting is inappropriate and should be amended. It suggests a two-tiered statute that separates non-malicious juvenile sexting from malicious juvenile sexting. The proposed statute, which would punish cyberbullying and malicious juvenile sexting more severely, will allow Washington to effectively deter harmful behavior while taking into account juvenile immaturity.'

    This document describes the types of online activities encompassing the sexual exploitation of children. It also offers background characteristics of victims and perpetrators. Another section highlights challenges faced by law enforcement officials and government policymakers in dealing with the online sexual exploitation of children:'A program that addresses all efforts to protect children from online exploitation and coordinates the work of all agencies and organizations working in this field is strongly recommended. There is currently no entity that coordinates or addresses all aspects of the online exploitation of children on a national level.'

    This article states that most publicity about online “predators” who prey on naive children using trickery and violence is largely inaccurate:'Internet sex crimes involving adults and juveniles more often fit a model of statutory rape—adult offenders who meet, develop relationships with, and openly seduce underage teenagers—than a model of forcible sexual assault or pedophilic child molesting. The purpose of this article is to provide an accurate, research-based description of the characteristics and prevalence of this high-profile social problem; make recommendations for effective responses; indicate needs for future research; and give professionals basic resources to help manage issues that arise in practice and other contexts.'

    This article describes a statement written by the National Centre of Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) around the new phenomenon of 'sexting'. A definition of 'sexting' is given, whereas also some considerations around the subject:'NCMEC does not believe that a blanket policy of charging all youth with juvenile or criminal violations will remedy the problem of sexting. Youth sometimes engage in risky behavior. However, the combination of the Internet, easy transmission of digital photos, and poor judgment can lead to serious and unintended consequences including becoming the victim of enticement, blackmail, harassment and exploitation by both adults and other youth. Increased education about these consequences and law enforcement's use of prosecutorial discretion will help prevent these situations.'

    This article is intended to provide background for the discussion of interventions related to sexting. It begins with a definition of sexting, and continues with overviews of research and media stories related to sexting. It then discusses the statutory and constitutional framework for child pornography and obscenity. The article concludes that 'much work is still needed to determine the full scope and nature of the sexting phenomenon and to identify the best interventions for addressing sexting'.

    The writer of this article states that teens should have the right to 'sext':'This means they would have the same rights as adults to produce sexual images of themselves without fear of prosecution for creating child pornography. The right to sext is also about the right to demand that these images are kept private. While further legal reforms are needed to protect online privacy (for youth and adults), allowing teens the right to sext is the first step in clarifying that eople who receive these images have no right to distribute them further without permission. The panic about sexting teens highlights the need for broader conversations about social media that can fully account for the complicated issues of privacy and consent in new digital media.'

    This article states that the taking, sending or forwarding of sexually suggestive images (sexting) can have social, psychological and legal consequences and should be recognized as a public health issue:'Teens need to be aware that they can be arrested, charged and convicted for possessing and distributing child pornography, even when the pornography they are sending is of themselves.'And:'Health care professionals caring for teens should recognize that sexting is a public health issue. Health care professionals need to become better informed about the issue so that they can comfortably include questions about sexting in their teen health visits, and integrate discussions on safe and responsible online and cell phone activity. Most importantly, health care professionals need to speak with teens and their families about the risks and potential consequences of sexting. Addressing these issues may prevent a teen from finding him- or herself in a compromising position.'
