Presumably the name Internet 'Safety' Bill was coined by Dominic Cummings...

Internet organisations write to MPs pointing how dangerous it will be for internet users to lose the protection of End to End Encryption for their communications


Link Here15th June 2021
Full story: Online Safety Bill...UK Government legislates to censor social media

To Members of Parliament: end-to-end encryption keeps us safe

68 million of your constituents are at risk of losing the most important tool to keep them safe and protected from cyber-criminals and hostile governments.

End-to-end encryption means that your constituents' family photographs, messages to friends and family, financial information, and the commercially sensitive data of businesses up and down the country, can all be kept safe from harm's way. It also keeps us safer in a world where connected devices have physical effect: end-to-end encryption secures connected homes, cars and children's toys. The government should not be making those more vulnerable to attack. The draft Online Safety Bill contains clauses that could undermine and in some situations even prohibit the use of end-to-end encryption, meaning UK citizens will be less secure online than citizens of other democracies. British businesses operating online will have less protection for their data flows in London than in the United States or the European Union. Banning end-to-end encryption, or introducing requirements for companies to scan the content of our messages, will remove protections for private citizens and companies' data. We all need that protection, but children and members of at-risk communities need it most of all.

Don't leave them exposed.

With more people than ever before falling prey to criminals online, now is not the time for the UK to undertake a reckless policy experiment that puts its own citizens at greater risk. We, the undersigned, are calling on the Home Office to explain how it plans to protect the British public from criminals online when it is taking away the very tools that keep the public safe. If the draft Online Safety Bill aims to make us safer, end-to-end encryption should not be threatened or undermined by this legislation.

Sincerely, *Members of the Global Encryption Coalition

 

 

Miserable drinks censors...

ASA whinges about a clubbing event featuring excessive drinking


Link Here15th June 2021

UK Garage Brunch is a large scale lunchtime clubbing event featuring Garage music, buffet lunch and unlimited drinks that are included in the ticket price.

The ASA whinged about two posts on event promoter UKG Brunch's Facebook page:

a. The first post, seen on 16 March 2021, featured a video showing two young women who appeared to be inebriated walking then falling over on a pavement. A third woman was then shown falling into a bush. Superimposed text on the video stated LEAVING A BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH LIKE. A caption on the post stated We All Have A Friend Like Girl No.3! ... #UKGBrunch #DaytimeRaver #drinkresponsibly. The post also featured a link to buy tickets to UKG Brunch's events.

b. The second post, seen on 5 April 2021, featured a video of two women who appeared to be inebriated walking out of a building and then falling over on the pavement, with the UKG Brunch logo displayed. Superimposed text on the video stated CAUSUALLY LEAVING A BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH. A caption on the post stated It's The 3rd Girl At The End... The Countdown IS ON Until We Reopen...

The complainants challenged whether the ads were irresponsible because they encouraged excessive drinking.

UKG Brunch Ltd said the posts were intended to provide light hearted relief following a difficult year. They said the women shown in the videos were not associated with, and had not attended, UKG Brunch's events, and that both posts had featured the hashtag #drinkresponsibly. Since being notified of the complaints by the ASA they had amended the captions on both posts to state Drink Responsibly Guys!! (disclaimer: we don't condone irresponsible drinking) #drinkresponsibly.

ASA Assessment: Complaints upheld

The CAP Code stated that marketing communications must be socially responsible and must contain nothing that was likely to lead people to adopt styles of drinking that were unwise. For example, they should not encourage excessive drinking.

The ASA noted that neither of the videos featured alcohol or the consumption of alcohol. We acknowledged UKG Brunch's comments that the women shown in the videos were not associated with, and had not attended, their events. However, we considered that consumers would interpret the videos, when taken in combination with the superimposed text LEAVING A BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH LIKE206 and CASUALLY LEAVING A BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH, and links to where they could buy tickets to UKG Brunch's events, as an incitement to attend those events and drink excessively. Although we acknowledged that the posts were intended to provide light-hearted relief, we considered that they nonetheless encouraged excessive drinking by presenting binge drinking alcohol in a humorous light and by normalising and trivialising the dangers of excessive alcohol consumption.

While we acknowledged that UKG Brunch had amended the relevant posts to state Drink Responsibly Guys!! (disclaimer: we don't condone irresponsible drinking) #drinkresponsibly, we considered that caption did not override the message of the ad. Because we considered that the ads and the amended versions of the ads would be interpreted by consumers as encouraging excessive drinking, we concluded that they had breached the Code.

The ads must not appear again in the form complained about. We Told UKG Brunch Ltd to ensure that that their future marketing communications relating to alcohol were socially responsible and did not imply, condone or encourage excessive consumption of alcohol.

    Prison Island Holidays...

    Thailand is proposing covid quarantine where tourists have the freedom to roam about a holiday island... but must wear a prison GPS bracelet to alert police should they try to escape


    Link Here15th June 2021
    Tourists are being invited to Thailand under a mandatory 14 day covid quarantine scheme, but with innovative idea that the whole of the island of Phuket will be declared as the quarantine zone.

    Visitors to Phuket under the Phuket Sandbox scheme will be required to wear a wristband that will track their location at all times. Presumably the system is designed to alert the police of any attempt for the tourists to escape the confinement zone.

    Note the term 'sandbox' is a computing term meaning an offline experimentation area where new designs can be tested before going live in the real world system.

    The news regarding wristbands was confirmed as officials in Phuket this week began preparing the security protocols that will be put in place for all foreigners arriving on the island from July 1. Thai news site Manager reported on some of the security protocols that will be put in place, which include security checkpoints on the main road leading to the island screening everyone arriving or trying to leave.

    The checkpoints will feature facial recognition cameras that will be able to detect any tourist who tries to leave Phuket before the 14 day mandatory quarantine period.

    The conditions of entry into Thailand are extremely onerous and require that visitors are doubly vaccinated, pay for a series of 4 PCR covid, tests, book in with state approved quarantine hotels, buy covid health insurance, and apply to the local embassy for permission to travel to Thailand. And of course to take the risk of having their holiday totally written off in detention should they fail a covid test.

    And by the way, all bars, discos, and gogos etc are currently closed due to a coronavirus lockdown.

    Officials ludicrously said they expect approximately 129,000 foreigners to visit Phuket under the Sandbox scheme. The scheme is unlikely attract any tourists as at all, but may appeal to visitors who have business or family in Thailand who may prefer to spend their 2 weeks quarantine on the beach rather than locked up in a hotel room.

     

     

    Promoting repression...

    Hungary's parliament passes law banning gay content that may be accessed by under 18s


    Link Here15th June 2021
    Hungary's parliament has just passed a law banning the promotion of homosexuality to minors. Of course the reality is that gay material will be widely banned for adults citing the possibility that children could be accessing any open media.

    Critics claim the law -- which effectively bans educational programmes and publicity of LGBTQ groups -- would severely restrict freedom of expression and children's rights. More than 5,000 people rallied outside parliament on Monday against the legislation, which LGBTQ groups have compared to similar legislation in Russia.

    The legal text reads:

    In order to ensure... the protection of children's rights, pornography and content that depicts sexuality for its own purposes or that promotes deviation from gender identity, gender reassignment and homosexuality shall not be made available to persons under the age of 18.

    It is not yet clear what scale of punishments will be available to enforce the law.

    Local broadcaster RTL Klub Hungary commented:

    The law could mean that movies that some see as promoting homosexuality, such as Bridget Jones's Diary, Harry Potter or Billy Elliot, can only be shown at night with an 18-plus classification,

     

     

    Jailed without consent...

    Porn producer jailed for failing to obtain proper consent from performers for the wide distribution of the videos


    Link Here15th June 2021

    An adult-film actor tied to the porn production company GirlsDoPorn.com has been sentenced in federal court to 20 years in prison.

    As part of his plea, Ruben Garcia admitted to threatening and deceiving the women, and paying other women to lie to reluctant recruits, falsely asserting that the footage would not be seen in the U.S. but was intended for private DVD collections overseas.

    Garcia pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking by force, coercion and fraud, and admitted his role as a recruiter and performer with GirlsDoPorn.com and GirlsDoToys.com from 2013 to 2017. Authorities said the company lured in young women who had never appeared in adult films.

    Other people involved in the company will be tried at a later date or else have fled the US.
