Mobile operators team up against child abuse

Access denied

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Mobile operators across Europe are teaming up against the use of mobile internet services to distribute child pornography images.

The GSM Association is launching "the Mobile Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Content" made up of most of the major operators including Orange, Telecom Italia, Telefonica O2, TeliaSonera, T-Mobile, Vodafone and dotMobi.

The group will use Notice and Take Down procedures to remove content on their networks. The alliance will also prevent access to websites identified by an "appropriate agency" as containing images of abuse.

The group was at pains to point out that the "vast majority" of child pornography on the net is accessed via conventional connections.

However, it said, the rollout of mobile broadband raises the possibility that the problem will shift to its members' networks. It aims to "stem and ultimately reverse the growth of online child sexual abuse content".

In other news the GSM Association and the five UK mobile operators, Orange, O2, T-Mobile, Vodafone and 3, will work together to measure mobile advertising. The five companies will set common standards and metrics so that advertising planners can get numbers to back up their campaigns. ®
