UK Internet Censorship: Current status

The Digital Economy Act 2017 threatened to introduce strict age verification for internet porn access coupled with ISP blocking for websites that don't comply. However the legislation was fundamentally flawed by its voluntary approach to privacy and security. After a series of delays, the age verification section of the bill was put out of its misery in October 2019.

The censorship of internet porn will now be carried over into the Online Harms Bill which has wider ambitions on the censorship of the whole internet. This bill will be discussed during 2020.

Prior to the Online Harms Bill will be consideration of the extension of EU VoD censorship under an updated AVMS directive. Ofcom had previously mirrored censorship arrangements as proposed for the Digital Economy Act but now may need to reconsider as age verification services will not be so readily available.

Meanwhile the Information Commissioner's Office is considering wide ranging age verification requirements for most websites in the name of data protection for children, Eg Amazon shoppers may have to prove being 16+ before being allowed to hand over personal details to online checkouts. The ICO was due to present its proposals by 23rd November 2019 but this has now been delayed until a new government is in place.
