  3. Obscenity is very sensitive issue all over the world yet there is no settled definition of the word ‘obscenity’ under any law. What is nude art or sexually explicit thing for one person may be obscene or porn for another. Obscenity on the Internet is not a common crime. Internet has provided a medium for the facilitation of crimes like obscenity or pornography. Cyber obscenity is the trading of sexually expressive materials within cyber space. Although the Indian Constitution guarantees the fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression; it has been held that a law against obscenity is constitutional. The Supreme Court has defined obscene as “offensive to modesty or decency; lewd, filthy, repulsive”. It is very difficult to testify whether any pornographic material is illegal or not? One particular pornographic material may be illegal in India but not in other countries. The test for obscenity was first laid down the Regina v. Hicklin[1], as a tendency to deprave and corrupt those whose minds are open to such immoral influences and into whose hands a publication of this sort may fall.”
