The Oregon Supreme Court recently ruled that state law doesn't make viewing child porn illegal. The Legislature is taking action. In January, the Court ruled that viewing child porn on the Internet is not a crime if none of the images are purposefully downloaded, printed or paid-for. Senator Joanne Verger: “Further, the Oregon Supreme Court noted that the Oregon Legislatures has not banned viewing child pornography, unless it was paid for and that viewing does not equal possession.” But the Senate has approved a bill that closes the loophole. The bill also amends current law to add that video recordings of all kinds of child pornography is unlawful. The bill moves to the House.
