    You have 9 months to amass a collection of free porn before the government bans it...

    What are people's thoughts on this? (Via link http://www.melonfarmers.co.uk/gc16c....t_bans_it_5794)


    UK Government sets out new law to create an internet porn censor
    Link Here full story: UK Governments Consults on Age Checks for Porn...Government proposes censoring porn websites that are not age verified

    Result of Government Consultation

    child safety online The Government has published a document summarising responses to its proposals to mandate restrictive age validation requirements for porn websites. 48% of responses opposed the proposals whilst 44% agreed with the proposals. However the government made clear that they will proceed with the proposed censorship law. The consultation document reads:

    It is clear from our analysis of the consultation responses that this is an issue which tends to polarise opinion, with strongly held views on either side. Overall, there was a roughly even split between those supporting age verification (44%) and those not in favour (48%). Responses from individuals made up the vast majority of those which were submitted via our online questionnaire (94%). Over half of the individuals were men, the majority of whom were between 18 and 34 years old.

    Crucially, however, many of the key organisations we work with in the online child protection sphere children's charities, support and advice groups, the BBFC, internet service providers, and payment service firms and credit card companies indicated their support for the proposals, and the overriding policy goal of protecting children online.

    Over a quarter (26%) of the individuals who responded indicated that they are parents or carers, and 23% of individuals said that they work with children (in the education and health sectors, working in or with churches, in voluntary roles, mentoring, and as researchers). In both groups, a majority supported the Government's approach.

    Notably, pornography providers who responded to the consultation also stated their support for the protection of children online, and (with caveats) the introduction of age verification controls to protect children from content which is not appropriate for them.

    As was set out in our consultation, the Government's preferred approach to delivering this commitment is to establish a new law, requiring age verification (AV) controls for online pornography this was the manifesto commitment, and following consideration of the consultation responses, remains the Government's intention.

    To underpin this, we will also establish a new regulatory framework, and we will ensure a proportionate approach by enabling the regulator to act in a sufficiently flexible and targeted way.

    Following analysis of the responses to the consultation, Government will now take several next steps. We will:

    Bring forward legislation, in the Digital Economy Bill, to establish a new law requiring age verification for commercial pornographic websites and applications containing still and moving images, and a new regulatory framework to underpin it

    Continue to work with payments firms and ancillary companies to ensure that the business models and profits of companies that do not comply with the new regulations can be undermined

    Maintain ongoing engagement with pornography providers, age verification providers, and other parts of the industry, to ensure that the regulatory framework is targeted and proportionate, to achieve maximum impact and to enable compliance

    Continue to work on broader internet safety issues, including work led by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS), and raising awareness and resilience

    Digital Economy Bill

    See http://services.parliament.uk/bills/...aleconomy.html
    See http://www.publications.parliament.u...0045/17045.pdf

    House of Commons logo And indeed the new censorship law is included in the Digital Economy Bill introduced on 5th July 2016. Section 3 outlines the setting up of an internet porn censor and the remainder sets out website censorship options and financial penalties for contravening websites, their payment providers and advertisers.

    The government is planning on passing the bill into law in spring 2017.

    Section 3

    15 Internet pornography: requirement to prevent access by persons under the age of 18
    16 Meaning of pornographic material
    17 The age-verification regulator: designation and funding
    18 Parliamentary procedure for designation of age-verification regulator
    19 Age-verification regulator's power to require information
    20 Enforcement of sections 15 and 19
    21 Financial penalties
    22 Age-verification regulator's power to give notice of contravention to payment service providers and ancillary service providers
    23 Exercise of functions by the age-verification regulator
    24 Requirements for notices given by regulator under this
    25 Interpretation of this Part

    Typical waste of time and tax payer's money. I'm sure it will be easy to circumvent. The poor adolescents will have to do what I had to: look for discarded porn mags in the woods. Wanking is just about the only thing the government hasn't taxed yet.

    Age verification for adult related material is, of course, a decent idea....but added to this is the govt trying to squeeze through legislation that will enable them to set up their own regulatory body ao that they can control / censor what is allowed theough...

    If this is UK only, it should be easy for you Brits to use IP redirection services. Porn must go on!
    Looking for Orozco the Embalmer (Camera Obscura) and the Swedish theatrical poster of Breaking Point (Vibenius/"Ron Silberman Jr.", 1975).

    Of course it's the UK considering it mentions the UK Government in the opening paragraph.

Porn can have its disadvantages in terms of teenagers thinking the sort of ridiculous athletic activity you see is normal sex and in terms of body image, but they need to be educated and that falls on the parents and teachers. Wrapping them in cotton wool isn't going to help at all.

    Most parents will switch these settings off when they realise what other innocuous sites they block too (like my old man did when he realised it blocked the lottery!)

    This is one of the reasons the Bill of Rights is so important in the United States.
