The development of digital information and communications technologies changed society in many ways. Many new threats, including online child pornography, emerged. Child pornography appeared with the emergence of photography, and since then, with each technological advance, there was an increase in the availability of these materials. The article focuses on how ICTs changed the production and distribution of child pornography and the European response to this new threat. As this criminal behavior targets one of the most vulnerable groups of society, and it being a global phenomenon, it is important for international organizations to combat it. For the European Union, this is one of the priorities for over one and a half decades and since then many legal, political, and institutional changes took place.
