Azov Films was based in Toronto, Canada, and specialized in selling naturist visual material mostly featuring boys participating in nudist gym and camp sports. The films were apparently produced in Eastern Europe. The legality of the material differed from country to country, but was widely believed to be well established in the USA, Canada, and the UK.

The most explicit sexual images aren’t in question; the grey area involves images of nude children, often pubescent, that are sexual only by context.
Section 163.1 of the Canadian Criminal Code defines child pornography, in part, as any visual representation of “explicit sexual activity” or “the depiction, for a sexual purpose, of a sexual organ or the anal region of a person under the age of eighteen years.”
The United States statute similarly includes in its definition of child porn the “lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of any person.”
By specifying a “sexual purpose,” the law protects high-minded free expression—such as the photography of Sally Mann, whose work features child nudes and who has been accused of exploiting children—even as, at the lower end of the market, it leaves room for interpretation.
The law specified a “sexual purpose” as the defining characteristic of child pornography, but did that have to mean explicit sex? Read another way, Belanger thought, the statute surely could mean that a “sexual purpose” could apply to any image at all that common sense suggested had no reason—other than a sexual one—to be on film. This legal argument was quietly radical
Then she watched them, noting every moment that could be said to serve a “sexual purpose.” All the videos contained nudity. In one, a child takes fifteen showers; in another, staged in a sauna, nude children sit around on couches and eat food. Each film began with the same scrolling text: “Naturism has been around since the dawn of time. The freedom of being ‘one with nature’ is a healthy pastime in many European cultures.”
“You say, ‘This one film’s borderline, and this one’s not borderline,’” Belanger said. “But it’s all the same kids, right? So it sexualizes the whole collection.” That reasoning turned out to be convincing enough that a judge granted the CES a warrant to go after not just Way, but also Azov Films and its customer records.
When customers began voicing reservations about any specific boy—“He’s becoming too old, and they’re not into that,” Belanger said—she would notice that in videos made around the same time, the boy would wrangle younger ones into view and then slip out of the frame.
Way seemed to spend much of his time emailing his filmmakers, among them Igor Rusanov and Andrey Ivanov, both from Ukraine, and Markus Roth, based in Romania
