BRITAIN REQUIRING PORN WEBSITES TO PROVE AGE VERIFICATION WITH CREDIT CARDS

The United Kingdom is getting tough on porn. For the first time, the country is requiring porn websites, both free and commercial sites, set up by commercial porn companies, as well as sites hosted abroad, to prove that individuals accessing their websites are over the age of 18, by using credit card verification. If websites fail, they risk being banned in Britain and potentially fined up to $325,000. Digital minister Matt Hancock said: “Now we are taking the next step to put in place the legal requirement for websites with adult content to ensure it is safely behind an age verification control. All this means that while we can enjoy the freedom of the web, the U.K. will have the most robust internet child protection measures of any country in the world.” The move comes as the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport reports that nearly half of all 11 to 16-year-olds have seen online porn, and 28% of children may have stumbled across pornography while 19% had actively searched for porn. The new rules, set to be part of the Digital Economy Act, seeks to have age verification for all online porn accessible in the U.K. by April 2018.
