Criminalising extreme pornography : a lost opportunity.

McGlynn, Clare and Rackley, Erika (2009) 'Criminalising extreme pornography : a lost opportunity.', Criminal law review. (4). pp. 245-260.

Abstract

This article considers provisions criminalising the possession of ‘extreme pornography’ in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. It begins by outlining the current criminal law regime governing pornography, before considering the new measures in detail. We highlight the areas which are most likely to witness challenges, and the areas about which confusion seems inevitable. We close by considering the arguments for proscribing the possession of extreme pornography and possible ways forward, while recognising that, regrettably, the legislative opportunity to take action in this field has most likely now been lost.
