Is it illegal for a minor to draw pornography?
Question Details: My friend is 14 years old and I am trying to convince him that drawing and sharing pornography is production and redistribution of child pornography and illegal. Is this true?
Child pornagraphy is not porngraphy by a child but pornography involving children or minors. If he is drawing and sharing obviously adult women or men, then it is not child pornography and not illegal, but is very unwise: as is often said, when you put on the web lasts and is findable/searchable forever, so you don't want a college, an employee, a significant other, etc. in the future to find this.
If he draws people who could be or obviously are minors, then it would be child pornography and he would potentially be subject to criminal liability.
