Before
the advent of digital cameras, film had to be developed and printed
commercially. Concerns about privacy kept most camera users, including young
people, from taking or posing for revealing photos. Digital cameras, especially easy-to-use versions marketed to
children, have made it simple to take pictures that no one else sees. Computers
have made it easy to transmit them. Photographs can be posted online or sent
via email. Some young people are experimenting with this technology while
exploring their sexuality by taking explicit or revealing pictures of
themselves or others.

In
addition to digital photographs, some young people are also using
computer-based cameras known as webcams
to transmit sexually explicit images of themselves. Webcams, which are
inexpensive and often no bigger than a golf ball, are usually placed on top of
a computer monitor. When connected to a computer, these cameras send video
images that can be viewed instantaneously by another computer user or
simultaneously by many users. Adults who seek to exploit children sometimes
mail webcams to children they have met on the Internet to facilitate online
sexual encounters.

Camera phones can also be misused. Because they are always at hand,
they make it easy to take photos on the go. They also make it easy to take
inappropriate photos. In some cases the subject may not have given permission
for the photo to be taken, or even know they’ve been photographed. And camera
photos can be uploaded to a computer just as easily as photos from a standard
digital camera. Parents can help their children learn how to use wireless
devices more safely.

Young
people don’t always think about the long-term repercussions of their actions
and may not be able to foresee the potentially embarrassing and dangerous consequences
of misusing this technology. Just as parents control their children’s use of
the Internet itself, they need to supervise and oversee the use of these
photographic tools, including cameraphones
and camcorders
.

Another
misuse of digital media is piracy. It is killing software, film and music
industry. CDs are available in the footpath at a very low price. Bollywood
faces a 50% loss due to piracy.

Some major companies like Mosear Bear has came
forward to fight piracy by selling CDs and DVDs at a low price. It is a good
move. Digital projection can keep away the pirates, because it does not allow
to copy directly from the screen
