Publishers should use common sense when deciding whether or not material involving children is appropriate for publication, a high court judge has said. The advice was given yesterday during a government appeal against the dismissal of child pornography charges against Easy Finder magazine, which in June 2006 published four photos of child pop star Renee Lee Wan, then 14, in a wet T-shirt under which she was wearing a 1.25cm-thick, 'flesh-coloured, self-adhesive, silicone bra'. Deputy High Court Judge Peter Line dismissed the appeal in the Court of First Instance on Tuesday. But he delivered an expanded judgment yesterday as guidance. Magistrate Gary Lam Kar-yan had previously dismissed the charges after finding it had not been proved beyond reasonable doubt the pictures depicted Renee's breasts. Mr Justice Line said the test for what constituted child pornography was an objective one. 'It could be possible to depict a female breast in a sexual manner even though it was not partially or wholly exposed.' The test for publishers was whether, viewed objectively, the depiction crossed the line into the realm of the sexual. 'I would have thought that the circumstances which would give rise to a reasonable person finding a depiction of a female breast in the absence of some actual exposure of it would be such that any sensible editor would recognise them and beware,' he said.
