Always nice to see someone doing something to help expose what is quite frankly one of mankind's greatest evils, Microsoft has announced that it will be beginning a program that can help curb child pornography on the Internet. Named CETS (Child Exploitation Tracking System), the program aids law-enforcement officials in preventing sexual exploitation of children using advanced software tools and effective collaboration.
Already, CETS has managed to charge a previous child sex offender with sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl. Its just a shame it was not able to burn the abuser alive as well, but who knows maybe they're working on it.
"Our vision is to support more effective child-exploitation policing by enabling collaboration and information sharing across police services. The tracking system will serve as a repository of information and will also be used as an investigative tool." - David Hemler, president, Microsoft Canada.
