According to the Winnipeg Sun, the province of Manitoba is contemplating a law that would make it mandatory for computer technicians to report suspected child pornography on computers they are servicing. The article, Winnipeg Sun: NEWS - Tech repair official kid porn watchdog?, refers to a successful conviction made as a result of a technician who reported a very suspiciously named file.

I don't know about just from file names, but already under US federal law it is a crime not to report child pornography.
