Foreword

Meter is a Greek word meaning “mother”. This charity was established by Fr. Fortunato Di Noto in Avola, a town in Sicily, at the end of the 1980s. As a young priest and one of the very first Italian Internet surfer, Fr. Fortunato saw the first images of babies and teenagers abused by pedophiles and decided to start making something about this issue. First of all, he started signaling to the police alla the pedophiles he could meet on the Net, then he established Meter charity in order to work with the Italian police signaling websites used by pedophiles.

In our days, 25 years later, Meter still continues to cooperate with the Italian and European police forces in order to make the Net a safer place for every child. Every year Meter publishes this Report concerning the websites and the trends of the pedopornographic phenomenon. This is a word map of pedophilia and pedopornography stemming from the denounces sent by Meter to the polices of all around the world. We fight against the modern merchants of slaves which sell thousands of boys, girls and teenagers abused in order to produce pedopornographic movies or pictures. This stuff is sold using the new technologies offered by the Net, technologies available for professionals and amateurs of this infamous environment.

Facts and figures

These are the main datas concerning the pedopornographic stuff Meter found on the Net in 2014:

574.116 pictures depicting children (age 3-13 yo) abused by adults;
95.882 videos;
621 (pictures and videos) depicting babies (0-3 yo) abused by adults.

Behind these numbers there are raped babies and tortured babies, often by sodomy; the number of infants abused by women is rising. This means that this phenomenon is really wide and covers both male and female sex gender. Pictures and videos are produced by amateurs and also by professionals.

Online archives
There is a new trend: in our days datas are available on smartphones and tablet PCs. Pedopornographic stuff is archived online. In 2014 we denounced:
 353 archives on Dropbox (5.496 pictures, 2.975 videos);
 36 on iCloud (1.348 pictures, 3.873 videos);
 3 on Box.com (6.676 pictures, 1.336 videos).

Pedopornography: Europe ranks #1

Datas collected during 2014 show that 37,34 % of our denounces come from Europe; #2 Africa (24,67%), #3 America (23,25 %), #4 Asia (12,93%), #5 Oceania (1,8%). In 2013 Africa ranked #1.

In Europe, Slovacchia ranks #1 for paedopornographic websites and stuff: 764 websites (61,41%); Russia ranks #2 (9,92%), Montenegro #3 (8,14).

The spread of pedophile sites on TLDs offers this hit parade of the shame:

1.Slovakia (764);
2.Libya (701);
3.Colombia (492);
4.Japan (287);
5.South Georgia (198);
6.Russia (117);
7.India (113);
8.Montenegro (96);
9.Mauritius (77)
10.Latvia (69);

From the analysis of specific domains of the network for the dissemination of child pornography, it is clear that Russia - in 2013 with 663 reported sites and first place in the Report of that year - in 2014 suffered a sharp decline, falling to 117; but still offers a heavy contribution with South Georgia, with 198 sites reported. Emerge exponentially Montenegro, Latvia, Germany, and Greenland (32) that is in the database for the first time.
