Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

Quote:
Most households in the UK will have pornography blocked by their internet provider unless they choose to receive it, David Cameron has announced.

In addition, the prime minister said possessing online pornography depicting rape would become illegal in England and Wales - in line with Scotland.

Mr Cameron warned in a speech that access to online pornography was "corroding childhood".

The new measures will apply to both existing and new customers.

Mr Cameron also called for some "horrific" internet search terms to be "blacklisted", meaning they would automatically bring up no results on websites such as Google or Bing.

He told the BBC he expected a "row" with service providers who, he said in his speech, were "not doing enough to take responsibility" despite having a "moral duty" to do so.

He also warned he could have to "force action" by changing the law and that, if there were "technical obstacles", firms should use their "greatest brains" to overcome them.

'Innocence'
In his speech, Mr Cameron said family-friendly filters would be automatically selected for all new customers by the end of the year - although they could choose to switch them off.

And millions of existing computer users would be contacted by their internet providers and told they must decide whether to use or not use "family-friendly filters" to restrict adult material.

The filters would apply to all devices linked to the affected home Wi-Fi network and across the public Wi-Fi network "wherever children are likely to be present".

Customers who do not click on either option - accepting or declining - will have filters activated by default, Tory MP Claire Perry, Mr Cameron's adviser on the sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood, told the BBC.

The UK's biggest internet service providers have agreed to the filters scheme meaning it should cover 95% of homes.

Other measures announced by the prime minister included:

New laws so videos streamed online in the UK will be subject to the same restrictions as those sold in shops
Search engines having until October to introduce further measures to block illegal content
Experts from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre being given more powers to examine secretive file-sharing networks
A secure database of banned child pornography images gathered by police across the country will be used to trace illegal content and the paedophiles viewing it
Mr Cameron also called for warning pages to pop up with helpline numbers when people try to search for illegal content.

He said: "I want to talk about the internet, the impact it is having on the innocence of our children, how online pornography is corroding childhood.

"And how, 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'm not making this speech because I want to moralise or scaremonger, but because 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."

But former Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre boss Jim Gamble told BBC Radio 4's Today programme it was important to "get to the root cause" of illegal pornography, by catching those responsible for creating it.

He added: "You need a real deterrent, not a pop-up that paedophiles will laugh at."

But Ms Perry argued filters would make a difference, saying that the killers of schoolgirls April Jones and Tia Sharp had accessed legal pornography before moving on to images of child abuse.

She added: "It's impossible to buy this material in a sex shop... but it's possible to have it served up on a computer every day."

In his speech, Mr Cameron said possession of online pornography depicting rape would be made illegal.

Existing legislation only covers publication of pornographic portrayals of rape, as opposed to possession.

"Possession of such material is already an offence in Scotland but because of a loophole in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, it is not an offence south of the border," Mr Cameron said.

"Well I can tell you today we are changing that. We are closing the loophole - making it a criminal offence to possess internet pornography that depicts rape."

The move has been welcomed by women's groups and academics who had campaigned to have "rape porn" banned.

Holly Dustin, director of the End Violence Against Women Coalition, said the group was "delighted".

"The coalition government has pledged to prevent abuse of women and girls, so tackling a culture that glorifies abuse is critical for achieving this," she said.

"The next step is working with experts to ensure careful drafting of the law and proper resourcing to ensure the law is enforced fully."

'No safe place'
Mr Cameron, who has faced criticism from Labour over cuts to Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre's funding, insisted the centre's experts and police would be given the powers needed to keep pace with technological changes on the internet.

"Let me be clear to any offender who might think otherwise: there is no such thing as a safe place on the internet to access child abuse material," he said.

A spokesman for Google said: "We have a zero tolerance attitude to child sexual abuse imagery. Whenever we discover it, we respond quickly to remove and report it.

"We recently donated $5m (£3.3m) to help combat this problem and are committed to continuing the dialogue with the government on these issues."

According to some experts, "default on" can create a dangerous sense of complacency, says BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones.

He says internet service providers would dispute Mr Cameron's interpretation of the new measures, insisting they did not want to be seen as censors.

Dr and the likes will be blocked.

Youtube can be seen as adult due to a lot of content being on it. Forums that allow rude language and gifs/pictures to be uploaded.

This will affect traffic to these sites and advertising revenue will go down. Not that gore sites will be affected but the forums that aren't really supposed to be 18+ will bring new rules into force.

I've seen it happen to two other forums, the google advertising was down because the sites were flagged by trusted software blocking companies.

100+ members were banned as a result.

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

I think that's a bit wrong. I don't watch the fucked up porn, but damn it, I like my porn! Why do I have to seek permission and such to enjoy it? Thank gosh I don't live in the UK. Maybe it's just me but...I like my porn.

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

I'm all for stopping kiddie porn, but adults should have the right to decide for themselves. If the government starts telling the people what they can access online, where does it stop? And if you want to access porn from your house, you have to go on a special list now?

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

I'm surprised. Usually it's the American religious right crusading against pornography.

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

So this means that if I visit documenting reality I can go to prison? This sight does have some apparent real rape of a reporter on it. I am sure it would be illegal to buy the beheadings in a shop as well so that means they will be illegal not to mention everything else.

I wish they were more clear on the matter.

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

It's not a bad thing because since all this porn on the net has been about I'm pretty sure young people have been slutting it about a lot more and playing out gangbangs and stuff. Plus it's not compulsory for adults as they will have a choice of whether to get it blocked or not. It's not a list

Re: Cameron Unveils Online Porn Curbs

The creep of censorship under the usual pretence of 'protecting the children'. It's the responsibility of parents to raise children, not of the state. In fact it's important we don't allow the state to indoctrinate children. The software they want to use in enforce this was created by the Chinese government for it's censorship of the internet. Governments fear the internet because they can't control it's content.
