UK government wants to block all Internet porn

The UK government has plans to ask ISPs to block all pornography from home Internet connections by default, in order to ensure that children are not accidentally exposed to sex while using the Internet. Under the plan, customers would have to ask their ISP for access to pornography. Homeowners would either specify which adult sites they want to be able to view, or pick a classification for their connection to restrict what is received according to age ranges, such as U, 12, or 18.

The UK’s largest ISPs, including BT, Virgin Media, and TalkTalk, will be called to a meeting next month to discuss the idea. Instead of using parental controls to stop access to pornography by opting out, the goal is to kill off access to pornography in the first place, and then allow adults to opt in. Most British ISPs prevent users from inadvertently viewing child porn websites but ministers want companies to use the technology to block pornography sites unless people specifically ask to view them.
