US v. Williams, 06-694

A statute criminalizing, in certain specified circumstances, the pandering or solicitation of child pornography is neither overbroad under the First Amendment nor impermissibly vague under the Due Process Clause. The Court rejects concerns that virtual child pornography or sex between youthful-looking adult actors might be covered by the term "simulated sexual intercourse."
