Here in the UK, the David Cameron Prime Minister has announced that people will have an internet porn filter by the end of 2014.
How will this work? If you are a new customer or switching to another internet service provider, you will have the internet filter turned on by default. This filter will block websites with pornographic content. If you choose to opt out of the filter, then it will not block pornographic websites.
I think that this is a really good move. I’m sure that a lot of children might be using the Internet for their school work or leisure. Since this filter will be an opt-out thing a lot of people will keep it on by default. That being said, there is a problem I have with this. I (like many other websites) am work-safe and family friendly. For some reason or the other, there is nothing to stop this filter from other websites being banned here in the UK. What I would like to know is if there will be any due process for any false positives to be reported.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
