    A huge debate out of this ruling ... there's a ton of it on Facebook I hear. :steamed:

    U.S. News - Viewing child porn on the Web 'legal' in New York, state appeals court finds

    So the legislature needs to get busy ... and quickly to close the loophole to help jail the pervs.

    Also another reason for me to dislike new york ... already hate all teams new york.

    Huh, if he stored it then how did he not possess it? Judge needs to go.

    He got charged on 1 count and off on two others it seems. I'm thinking this just enables the pervs ... loophole must be closed and all states need to tighten their laws to take it to these people.

    Just more of "America Going Down The Toilet" I wonder how long it will be before Hollywood starts doing it (child porn movies) I am beginning to see why Islam calls America "The Great Satan"

    He was convicted on counts where the info was stored. He was cleared on the count where there was a file in his browser cache. That is a valid but subtle point (BTW the guy was caught because his CPU was runnung slow and he asked have it fixed and they found files in the cache and other folders.).

    The legals issue is this, Say yo are browsing legal (porn sites) and you get a pop up with kiddie porn pics, you close the window and don't go to the site or otherwise view the illegal file from the pop up, you don't store or knowlingly visit any site with illegal files, your cache isn't cleared and the authorities find out, about the file in the cache, should you go to jail? Same if you are infected with a virus and something is stored in the cache.

    The judge in this case said no he wasn't liable for the file inthe cache, since he didn't store or print the file.
