A Swedish appeals court says that cartoons depicting under-age sex will be considered child pornography.

This judgement comes after a man appealed against his conviction. He had been arrested for having 51 images involving child sex, in the Japanese manga comics style. The Svea appeals court says that these kinds of images are harmful to children in general, and that it makes no difference that no real children were involved in making the cartoons.

The man, who works as a comics translator, has been sentenced to community service
