I understand it is illegal to download some forms of pornography

Customer Question

I understand it is illegal to download some forms of pornography from the internet.
Does this mean it is illegal to view them as they are being displayed, or does it mean it is
illegal to make a permanent recording which can be taken away ?

HI.

Thank you for your question . My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


There is no situation. I think my question is clear enough.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
I'm afraid I'm going to need more information that.

For instance, what type of pornography and in what circumstance?

Are there going to be tracings etc?

I cannot answer in a vacuum. I will need some information.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It appears that I need a definition of "Downloading" from the internet in any situation where there is no question of copyright.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
I'm sorry but I'm not sure I can help then.

I will opt out to see if others can.

If you do want to give me examples of specific situations then I will be able to help with that.
