The search engines have stepped up to the plate - their reforms will help remove video child abuse content more quickly and comprehensively.
An ITV investigation has helped Cambodian police to break up a major child abuse ring that supplied youngsters to British paedophiles.
An ITV Exposure investigation has uncovered how British paedophiles could be going to Cambodia to take advantage of the child sex trade.
The Catholic Church in Scotland will review recent and historic cases of abuse in the church in a "spirit of openness and transparency."
The church will give details of the number of incidents reported between 2006 to 2012, their nature and the results of investigations into them, it announced to members.
A further audit of all cases of historic abuse allegations between 1947 and 2005 is then expected to be launched, along with a full review of its safeguarding procedures.
The law must be changed to require child abuse allegations to be reported, a lawyer who represents dozens of Savile victims has said.
Abuse lawyer Liz Dux, of Slater & Gordon, welcomed the recent shift in attitudes towards child abuse, but said "there is so much more that needs to be done to make sure evil like this can never prosper again."
"It is vital lessons are learnt and our clients are determined that something positive comes out of the terrible abuse they suffered."
Ms Dux expressed her support for the proposal of a law change made by former director of public prosecutions Keir Starmer.
She said: "We are now calling on the Government to introduce legislation whereby those in regulated activities who have direct knowledge of abuse and fail to do the right thing and report it will face prosecution."
Failing to report allegations of child sexual abuse should be made a criminal offence, the former director of public prosecutions has said.
Speaking on BBC Panorama, Keir Starmer said it should be "mandatory" to report allegations.
"I think the time has come to change the law and close a gap that's been there for a very long time."
"The problem is if you haven't got a central provision requiring people to report, then all you can do is fall back on other provisions that aren't really designed for that purpose and that usually means they run into difficulties.
"What you really need is a clear, direct law that everybody understands."
The sexual exploitation and abuse of children is most likely when vulnerability meets power.
Events of the last year have brought into focus an issue which has, in truth, been in our consciousness for much longer - that there is something about institutions that can amplify both vulnerability and power to a point where sexual abuse of children within them can become endemic.
– Peter Davies, director of the NCA's CEOP Command
A common position for those institutions confronted with their past failures is to admit that things did once go wrong but that they have put measures in place to stop it happening again.
There is a risk this will lead to complacency and this must not happen if we want to protect our children.
There is no doubt that more needs to be done - and this work has to be done by the very institutions which are allowing this abuse to take place.
Children in institutions such as schools, churches and care homes are still not safe from abuse, child protection experts have warned in a new report.
More has to be done to keep children in institutions including sports clubs, youth groups and charities safe, the report published today by the National Crime Agency (NCA) warns.
The report, called The Foundations of Abuse, found that children are not only at risk from abusers but from "bystanders" who are aware of abuse but fail to report it.
And it warned that child sex offenders often manipulate victims into believing the attention they get is an "honour", making it hard for them to report abuse.
The report, carried out by the NCA's CEOP Command, is the first "thematic assessment" published by the agency since it was launched three weeks ago and looked at the risk of child sexual abuse by adults in institutions.
Crime figures are down by 7% according to the Crime Survey, police recorded crime is down 5%.
But theft and shoplifting offences are up. The latter being up 9%, partly due to he "Yewtree effect" with more people reporting it.
It takes immense courage for a victim to report these horrific crimes and it is vital they know prosecutors will focus on the credibility of their evidence not their perceived vulnerabilities.
We welcome this move to confront the myths of child sexual abuse and to concentrate on the facts of the case and the behaviour of the offender.
– Javed Khan, chief executive of Victim Support
It is critical that victims are referred to support agencies at the earliest opportunity to cope with the aftermath of the crime and prepare for the trauma of a trial.
We look forward to working with the Crown Prosecution Service and other agencies to ensure these principles lead to a better experience at court for child sex abuse victims.
Britain's top prosecutor has called new guidelines for child sex abuse cases "the most fundamental attitude shift" in the criminal justice system in a generation.
Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer said: "In the past five years our approach to prosecuting sexual offences has matured and developed - but this change marks the most fundamental attitude shift across the criminal justice system for a generation
Mr Starmer added: "For too long, child sexual abuse cases have been plagued by myths about how 'real' victims behave which simply do not withstand scrutiny. The days of the model victim are over.
"From now on these cases will be investigated and prosecuted differently, whatever the vulnerabilities of the victim."
