UK Will Enforce Internet Filtering

UK Will Enforce Internet Filtering

Blocking access to websites has been widely discussed in the United States with the PROTECT IP act first proposed this past spring. However, with the Senate approving the legislation, it turned out that the US isn’t the only country discussing the possibility of filtering the web.


Some leaked document, labeled “confidential”, has been posted on Open Rights Group website. The document in question details a proposal by the entertainment industry to pressure UK broadband providers to take part in a voluntary website blocking agreement. Such system is described as an approach to preventing access to online services which are focused upon copyright violation.

Meanwhile, for the public there are many reasons to be concerned, the main one being that the proposal is being discussed behind closed doors. In fact, this is the same as when pro-copyright outfits were trying to push for many controversial provisions in ACTA. This time, everything is being planned behind closed doors as well. However, when Wikileaks published the documents relating to ACTA back in 2008, it caused a major outcry from the public and human rights groups, and the same is expected now with the filtering proposal.

Indeed, according to the leaked document, “voluntary” Great Firewall of Britain will be just the same. Criticisms of the current proposal are all the same as well: was the system so bad that the industry decided to hide it from the public?

In addition, there are more reasons to be concerned. For example, the document, whilst mentioning evidence gathering, “prior warning and liberty”, also notes a turn-around time which is quick enough for “live events”, as well as a balance between swift action and evidence. Anyway, it’s hard to imagine a technical solution enabling Internet service providers to enforce an effective block within the time scale of a “live event”, regardless of the time it takes a court to act.

The Open Rights Group was the first to express concern for this policy, saying that it sets out a dangerous voluntary scheme involving so-called “expedited court procedures” as well as a “balance” between evidence and speed of action. Meanwhile, definitions of which content should be blocked are quite scarce, and there are no references to exactly how filtering would work. In the end, everyone understands that ISPs won’t be able to really prevent Internet users from accessing blocked services, since all it really takes to access them is the right proxy.

NEMISIS2009 avatarI wouldnt like to put my Money on the UK lol I've lived here all my life and the people are spineless, the Great in no longer in Britain !! As long as it dosnt affect them directly, no one says a thing till after the Law's have been slipt in thru the back door. The smoking ban is a prime example of the British Goverment in Action !!!! They've also sold this countrys right to Europe, once again behind the scenes !!! The UK people won't do a thing, i'm a betting man

jinxed avatarThey'll have to ban every proxy server service while they're at it, which this doesn't cover. Nothing to worry about.

anhighpriest avatarYou cannot blame the Baker if the Butcher bakes the bread... Comrades in Uk guess you all know what that means... You are Sc..wed! Just beware as your politicians are apt at dancing to the tunes of the foreigners on the Red Indian's soil. Need i say more?

flycov avatarNo worries, as Painless wrote above - Virgin Media is SOUND. No problems.
Large firms like Virgin ... they now very well why ppl buy high speed broadbands, they're not fools.
They also know that going into any deal against it's customers would go against their pockets too.

And what's bad for income is bad for company. NO DEAL with gvt.

No avatarAll users against such indiscriminate sanctions should disable their WEP/WPA security. When the majority of the population does that, ISPs can no longer pinpoint any particular household or person!!

jibbajabba avatar@harleyj: In theory, yes, but the extratorrent.com domain will only be blocked in countries (A) with a filter imposed and ( that decide to block it. You could still access the site using a proxy based in another country. Once you have the torrent file loaded it makes no difference as P2P traffic isn't blocked, and will never be, as it is so easy to get around.

keith23uk avatarGet sick of living in a Nanny country now days. The internet was invented for peoples freedom to share information now they try and take that away from us piece by piece. Wont be long till they tax our air we breathe! Saying that I know down London that is what they are doing with this stupid congestion charge!

Tando avatarThis is utter crap like Keith23uk said the internet was invented for the peoples freedom more or less (not that we have much freedom). They are never going to stop trying to put a law in place to screw with us. Im glad Virgin are saying piss off to the goverment and hope the keep saying it!

steelreaper avatarSoon every one will be using tor to surf the Internet. It is sad that everyone in supposedly free countries will have to what the Chinese and other people under totalitarian regimes have to do. There are no true free countries. Your only as free as they allow you to be. That is why Anarchy is the only way to go.
