An international cyberpolicing network setting out to snare paedophiles.

Australian police acting as part of an international "cybercop" network will be able to trap paedophiles who use the Internet to "groom" or lure children for sex, under new laws passed by parliament.

Justice Minister Chris Ellison said it was important that children were better protected from online sexual deviants and that the Internet did not become a pipeline of depravity.

"The grooming offences will enable the Australian Federal Police to interact with and arrest Internet predators before they abuse children and before they use Internet chatrooms to expand their evil web," Ellison said in a statement on Tuesday.

Australian police are forming a global taskforce with crime squads from Britain, the United States and Canada to patrol Internet chatrooms in a crackdown on paedophile rings as the problem grows.

Under the new Australian laws, adults caught using the Internet to procure children younger than 16 for sex face up to 15 years in jail, while people using the Internet to access or transmit child pornography face up to 10 years prison.
