This article explores the extent to which cyberspace has made possible the control and regulation of fantasy. In particular it takes the example of two recent cases that considered the applicability of child pornography laws to cartoons circulated over the Internet. While such laws often seek their justification in the need to protect children, it is argued that they can also lead to outcomes which in effect place our fantasies and thoughts under state surveillance.
