    Default British Government Rejects Online Porn Ban

    The UK government has recently rejected demands that ISPs install automatic filters on porn material online to protect the kids. After a joint consultation of the Department and Education and Home Office, the ministers have agreed that broadband providers wont be required to put default blocks on porn content, and the responsibility should lie with parents.

    During the consultation, there were suggestions for a process whereby users would have to opt in if they wanted to see adult content, instead of being freely available for any users to access. But the report delivering the governments response to the consultation read that broadband providers would continue to use a so-called active choice system employed by such providers as BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media. The system involves encouraging parents to set certain controls on specific content instead of being putting it under the remit of the provider.

    The consultation in question revealed that only about 1/3 of parents would back the placement of default blocks to be enforced by Internet service providers, but it wasnt deemed high enough by the authorities to warrant blocking of content for all Internet users.

    The report in question also emphasized the difficulties in actually enforcing the blocks, with an overzealous approach also filtering out content pertaining to such topics as sexual health, while failing to block all the porn video on the Internet. Privacy advocates also criticized the proposals. For instance, Big Brother Watch claimed that the authorities have taken measured approach to the situation. The outfit pointed out that the proposal recognizes that it is parents, not the government, who are responsible for controlling what their kids can find on the web and rightly avoids any kind of state-mandated blocking of legitimate material. Moreover, the companies are already responding to demand from the parents who want to see filters.

    Honestly it should be the parents responsibility, not everyone should have to go by it just because people don't watch what there kids do online.

    Just as well. There would be a full uprising if porn was banned.

    There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

    To protect kids? Kids are going to learn sooner or later, anyone will always find a way around something.
