UK Internet Censorship

The Digital Economy Act  has been passed Parliament and  was set to lead to the mass blocking of internet porn to all UK residents. This includes the free tube sites and is not restricted to UK based websites. However data privacy issues and the lack of  acceptable age verification implementations led to the implementation of the Act being cancelled.

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.

See Details of the UK internet porn censorship regime in the Digital Economy Act

See UK Internet Censorship for ongoing news

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. The ICO is due to present its proposals by 23rd November 2019. Hopefully it will do better than the draft which required children to hand over all of their private personal data to any website that asked, just so the websites could offer 'better' data protection.
