Case Law: Extreme Porn

NOTE: This article is not correct, see comments below

This week, Alan Moore became the first man to be charged under the newly establish “extreme porn” laws.   This case is interesting for several reasons.

Firstly this follow close on the heels of failed Girls Aloud case. That case which saw Darryn Walker charged under the Obscene Publications act, for material involving “extreme porn”,. That case was dropped by the prosecution on the day of the case. The differences with the “Girls Aloud” case was it involved the “publication” of the material and proof that the person who published it also wrote it – but it was in writing, not in pictures.

Secondly, its a new law and new case. Many people will argue that consensual sex, even violent sex, should be allowed, so it recoding it should also be allowed. But, the famous case of R v Brown, disagrees.

Thirdly, the extreme porn charges have been bundled in with a sexual assualt charges on a teenage girl. It would be a brave liberal who would come to defend a peadophile, once the first case gets through its easier for the second cases to get through.

The phrase “bad cases make bad laws” comes to mind

    Note it’s not the first case – e.g., see http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/4445020.Man_had__grossly_offensive_and_disgusting__porn_images_on_computer/ , http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8139850.stm , http://www.thisisplymouth.co.uk/news/MAN-FACES-PORN-HOAX-CHARGES/article-1107006-detail/article.html . For some reason the BBC have decided to get their information from Liz Longhurst, and she is incorrect to say it’s the first.

    “But, the famous case of R v Brown, disagrees.”

    Sadly true, but note that the “extreme porn” law applies to images where no actual harm is caused – e.g., pretending to threaten someone with a knife, or any staged or fictional image that comes under the law. The acts are entirely legal, even taking into account of R v. Brown, but an image recording that act would be illegal.
