Eye On Internet Perv Pictures

The Territory Government is looking for ways to crack down on photographs posted on the internet without permission.
It is particularly concerned about sexually explicit pictures and those used to gratify pedophiles.
Territory Attorney-General Peter Toyne and his interstate counterparts have released a discussion paper titled Unauthorised Photographs on the Internet and Ancillary Privacy Issues.
Dr Toyne last night urged Territorians to have their say on what can be done to combat a growing problem.
"There have been interstate incidents involving schoolchildren at sporting events where their photos were taken without their consent and then posted on websites," Dr Toyne said.
"Some of these had links to sexually explicit websites. In Queensland there was a website containing hundreds of images of children taken covertly at parks in the state."
The Government also wants to tackle unauthorised photos from mobile phones and digital cameras.
"The new technology provides opportunities for exploitation that weren't even contemplated when the original laws were created," Dr Toyne said.
The discussion paper seeks to:
IDENTIFY the issues, including privacy issues, associated with unauthorised publication of photographs on the internet;
DISCUSS the adequacy of state and territory laws; and
IDENTIFY legislative and non-legislative options to tackle the issues.
The discussion paper is at www.nt.gov.au/justice
Public submissions close on October 14.
