UK Providers Worrying About Porn Filter

UK broadband provider Timico said that a pornography filter is technically impossible, and the only result the community can get from imposing it will be a system either hugely expensive or simply ineffective at working with the millions of existing websites. Meanwhile, the real threat is the possibility for the govt to expand this Internet filter on to other kinds of content the government doesn’t want citizens to access.

The recent call of UK MP Claire Perry for the creation of ISP-level porn filter has created much feedback. She proposed that adults willing to access porn only can do that after verifying they are over 18. The country’s Culture Minister said that it’s quite a serious matter and he believes that the broadband providers should offer solutions how to protect kids. He also voiced a hope that the ISPs would get their acts together and the government doesn’t have to legislate. Meanwhile, he noted that they are keeping an eye on the situation and are preparing a new communications bill.

At the same time, Trefor Davies, the chief technology officer for Timico, announced that a porn filter is simply “technically impossible.” He says that the main trouble is that there’s just too much porn material available online while there’s no proper way to filter it all. In short words, there are simply too many websites to block access to and no method to keep a credible blacklist of them all. He predicts that the government will simply end up with a system which is hugely expensive or simply ineffective, because the cost of putting such systems in place would outweigh the benefits. In addition, Davies also fears that an Internet porn filter will turn into filter of other kinds of content the government doesn’t want its citizens to see or access.

A bright example to refer to is Australia, where a suggested “voluntary” Internet filtering regime intended to “protect kids” rapidly deteriorated. The government added the list with “inappropriate material” and “offensive and unauthorized content”, including P2P traffic.

A representative for Open Rights Group also said that blanket censorship option will never be effective for most people. Even if such filter is implemented, the tech-savvy kids still can bypass it through free VPN service, proxy, P2P network, Wi-Fi piggybacking, or whatever else they want.

JayPunkston avatarUmmm... Most websites have the same feature but just like this its as simple as clicking a button. Any person could by pass it by lying and because most kids under 18 live at home its as simple as imputing that they are they're father. Try agian blokes.
