The growth of the information network and the expansion of communications led to the emergence of actions that exploited this technological progress to constitute serious crimes against society and its members. The crime of sexual exploitation of children via the internet is one of these crimes, the effects of which are not limited only to childhood but also the society and its future. As a result, the Jordanian libel law was enacted as a proactive measure to combat this crime (2015).

As a result, this study aims to shed light on the idea of immoral cybercrime, define the offence of child sexual exploitation over the internet, and provide its constituent parts and potential penalties.
