    Default Great Britiain to Introduce Porn Filters

    Internet Porn: David Cameron Plans Crackdown

    Every internet user will be forced to opt in if they want to access internet pornography in a new crackdown spearheaded by David Cameron.

    Possessing violent pornography showing simulated rape scenes will also be made a crime in England and Wales under the Prime Minister's plans.

    Mr Cameron has also set out steps to subject videos streamed online in the UK to the same restrictions as those sold in shops.

    And he warned internet giants that they could face tough new laws if they fail to blacklist key search terms for horrific images by this October.

    In an emotive speech, the Prime Minister warned that access to online porn is "corroding childhood" and demanded tough action by search engines such as Google.

    Under his plans, internet service providers (ISPs) will introduce a "default on" filters that will oblige homeowners to "opt in" to receive sexually graphic material.

    Mr Cameron said: "In the darkest corners of the internet, there are things going on that are a direct danger to our children, and that must be stamped out.

    "I feel profoundly as a politician, and as a father, that the time for action has come. This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence."

    The internet industry has already agreed to use a database to proactively scan, block and remove any unacceptable images wherever they occur.

    But Mr Cameron says they have a "moral duty" to go further and need to work out further measures to block access to content by focusing on searches for particular phrases.
    very nanny state behaviour from a conservative govt.

    I always thought that having a .xxx for all porn related sites was a good compromise. Therefore making it easy for parents to block them, and also lowering the chances of someone "mistakenly" going to a porn site.

    Because you know, he really thought bigboobedbabes.com was a nursing site.

    That's an incredibly sensible idea.

    It is, and it has been brought up before by Congress in the Bush and Obama administrations, and made strange bedfellows, as obviously the porn industry didn't like it, because they want people to "accidentally" find their material, and the Bush and Obama administrations were worried about...wait for it...wait for it...lost taxed revenues due to foreign countries just blocking all .xxx content and therefore lower porn revenue and lower taxes. They word it differently of course, but that is the reason.

    It's big business.

    So shocked that both of those administrations rejected such a reasonable idea. Shocked I say.

    I think it's a great idea - and about time, as there have been campaigns going on about this for aeons. I don't think it's particularly 'nanny-state-esque', as it's not as if the porn-sites are being banned, just that they have to be requested deliberately, rather than being foisted upon unwilling or unwitting internet users, whoever they may be.

    this will lead to a great number of fights among couples. "No sweetheart, I didn't opt in for porn. It must be a mistake. I didn't do that, really it wasn't me. I have no interest in that stuff. All I need is you, really. No interest in porn at all, really. You don't beleive me?"

    The only time(s) I've ever viewed porn was when I mistakenly went to one of their sites.

    There were moves down here to do something similar but no opt in. Was a pretty draconian proposal aimed at keeping bible thumping political interest groups happy.

    Luckily it got rolled and never happened

    The opt in... It's better I guess, although I'd have concerns about wether the government might keep a 'special eye' on those who do opt in.

    I dunno. I think leave it alone, people are going to get around it easily enough anyway, and just go after people who frequent the really bad stuff.

    The .xxx idea has merit but would never actually happen.

    I am not sure what porn is, I might have to do some research with the wife this evening.

    I'm guessing they do just as much tracking, if not more, of their citizens' digital footprints?

    To be honest, LM, I really wouldn't know...I DO know that after the Edward Snowden furore, the British government made a point of insisting that they don't scrutinise our web-activity in that way, but then they WOULD say that, wouldn't they...

    I think a .xxx is a great idea. You can end up on a porn site by mistake. I remember years ago hearing that Whitehouse.com or thewhitehouse.com was a porn site and sure enough it was.
