What actually constitutes "obscene" content is not clear from the law and varies widely in different communities in the United States. Being prosecuted for violating obscenity laws is a very real threat to all webmasters who have adult websites.

Displaying child pornography or "kiddie porn" on the Internet is illegal in the United States. Exactly what constitutes "Child pornography" is not clear - several categories of content exist that may or may not constitute child pornography, depending upon the circumstances.
