This story illustrates how child porn law applies to a lot more than still photos on phones. Police in Massachusetts are "investigating charges" against three teens who they alleged recorded video of two engage in sex and distributed the video to junior high students, WCBV TV Boston reported. In addition to child-pornography charges, statutory rape and wiretapping charges are being considered, police said (the latter if audio was involved). "Police said the video was taken at a home, not at the school. The alleged victim, a girl under 16, told them she did not realize she was being captured on cell phone. She went to police with her parents when she realized the video was circulating," WCBV added.
