This Comment assesses the impact, and growing prevalence, of cybersex trafficking: A relatively novel form of human trafficking conducted via livestream over the internet. In particular, this Comment focuses on the differences between the statutes that criminalize sex trafficking and child pornography and how these statutes operate both domestically and internationally. This Comment argues that the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 should be amended in order for the modern crime of cybersex trafficking to fall under the statute’s ambit and to aid in prosecution efforts.
