As far as the Home Office is aware, My Space as a US based company comply with US law and regulations on reporting child abuse content to the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). As we understand it this does not extend to contact offences such as grooming. CEOP and NCMEC have a co-operative relationship through the Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) and CEOP can receive reports on child abuse images from them. In the last reporting year CEOP have received nine reports of child abuse images from NCMEC. We do not hold any information on the original date that the matter was reported to My Space, and so cannot comment on any possible time lapse in that part of the process.
