    The Internet is a hard place to police because there are no borders and, the laws in one country do not apply in another. It is so easy for someone to move a website from location to another in minutes.to stop people like these, the world will have to come together and create a law (world law) that governs all countries.

    Is there anyway we could stop these people before this gets out of control?
