Norwegian online child porn use appears to be falling

Monday 10 November 2014 | 12:10 CET | News
Use of the internet to find images or videos showing child sexual abuse is going down in Norway, according to Telenor. It is ten years since the operator and the National Criminal Investigation Service (Kripos) launched a stop-page that appears when a web user is about to access a website with content depicting abuse. The number of hits for the stop-page has dropped dramatically since 2009 and so far in 2014, there have been 175,611 stops.
