    Default Legality Of Child Modeling Sites On The Internet

    Hi all. I found some threads on this issue but they were closed so I decided to start another.
    I became interested in this subject when I accidentally discovered the existence of these sights a few years ago. I've written to a lot of people about this and haven't really gotten much of a respnse.
    I know that this webe web has been shut down and the people involved arrested. Good! But what about all the other sites? There have to be hundreds! It just baffles me why people think that this is okay to do. You don't pose kids in skimpy clothes or underwear and call it decent modeling!
    Somebody told me that President Bush signed some kind of law awhile back that makes sexually explicit cartoons, of what can be thought to be kids, the same thing as child porn. Well, that's another issue. But is there anything that makes this modeling crap illegal? Are most of these sites operating overseas? I wsh someone would educate me as to what's going on with this stuff. Thanks.

    The response from a site called asacp.org is that these sites are not illegal. Okay, if that's true then why did they shut down that one and arrest the owner and photographer? I'm confused.

    The sites may be illegal. It would depend on the site and its content.

    Any sicko that makes a "child modeling" site needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Thats just sick.

    I agree 150%. I don't know if you have ever seen any of these so called child modeling sites but they're disgusting. And there seems to be hundreds of them. We're not talking cute, innocent, department store or television modeling. We're talking little girls in thong panties in very seductive poses.
    That Florida senator Foley really brought it to light when he campaigned against that childsupermodels.com. that was based in the state. But then, he himself, crashed and burned over computer e-mails or messages involving minors. "Childsupermodels" was owned by a company called Webe Web. The authorities finally shut it down and arrested the owner and photographer on child porn/exploitation charges.
    But, supposedly, there have been parents of some of these "models" come forward to defend the practice saying things like, "Well, my daughter made more in just a few months than I made all last year. This money will pay for her college education and then some." What kind of parent is this if this is true? What kind of parent allows their child to be photographed like this? They have to know what the idea behind it is! They can't be that stupid! Anybody with an ounce of brains ought to be able to figure that out!
    I read a story concerning "childsupermodels" that said a woman had been taking her daughter there because she was under the impression it was a stepping stone to a good career for the child. She was allowed in to the sessions at first, but then the photographer asked her to wait in another room for the rest of the sessions because he said it made the models nervous. She could see the photographer but not her daughter from her vanatge point.
    When the guy took a break and left the room during one session, she snuck in to see her daughter and saw her laying there in not much more than thong panties. The girl pled with her to not say anything because the guy had displayed a gun he was carrying and she was afraid of what he might do. They finished the session and went straight to the FBI when they left.
    I don't know. It's just terrible the things people will do to make a buck anymore. What's really sad is the number of kids that are being exploited with this, the money that's made on it, and the people that try to justify it. If some of these people are the parents of these kids how do you stop it? I don't care what country you live in it's just wrong!

    Again, sorry to be dragging up old threads, but this type of blanket reaction bothers me. While I'm not aware of most of the webeweb stuff, I gather that the guys running it aren't or weren't exactly nice guys, and that many of the photos were not tastefully done to say the least. However, this does not mean that there shouldn't be sites out there legitimately trying to further the careers of those kids who actually want to be models.

    Industry is actually harmed by statements like this as it may put the fear of prosecution on the minds of retailers of children's clothing. Retailers who would like to have models wearing the clothes that they sell in order to give parents a better idea of how the clothes, especially swim wear, will look on their child before they buy it. As many people order online these days, retail websites really do need to have these sorts of photos on their site. It would be nice if they didn't have to worry about the possibility of being charged with a crime by some overzealous prosecutor.
