IT is today the most common medium for accessing and distributing child abusive material (Eneman, 2005). The serious impact and the role of information technology (IT) for the production, distribution and accessing of child abusive material has been highlighted by a number of researchers in recent years (Eneman, 2010; Gillespie, 2008; Taylor and Quayle, 2003). The distribution of child abusive material through IT constitutes a serious and growing challenge for law enforcement agencies due to the characteristics of modern technological innovations (Eneman, 2010). A response to this is the collaboration between Law Enforcement and the Internet Service Providers’ (ISPs) implementation of so-called blocking systems to regulate access of this material. The Swedish blocking practice is based upon a voluntary partnership between Law Enforcement and the Internet Industry. The purpose with this study has been to evaluate the so called ‘blocking list’ compiled by the police and used by the involved ISPs.
