Credit card companies and technology firms should do more to combat child pornography on the Internet, a United Nations expert said Wednesday. Credit card companies may unwittingly process illegal Web transactions, Juan Miguel Petit, U.N. special rapporteur on child pornography said. [...] Petit also wants to force Internet service providers to remove or block access to illegal material when they see it and to oblige them to monitor their services to prevent it.
Child pornography on the Internet has become one of the biggest areas of cybercrime in recent years with police forces around the world rounding up thousands of Web users accused of accessing illegal sites.
