UK Plan to Filter Porn Could Be a Hot Mess, Say ISPs


The British government has joined China, Iran and Australia in seeking to actively restrict access to certain portions of the Internet. Communications officials have revealed plans to ask Internet service providers in the UK to restrict access to pornographic websites, especially for minors. However, ISPs have given that idea the thumbs-down on the grounds that it’s up to parents and caregivers to deal with the issue. It will be difficult to restrict access to online porn, say the plan’s critics.
