The United Kingdom has announces pilot scheme starting in October, designed to help parents protect their kids from inappropriate content. Now online music videos will be rated by an age classification within the frameworks of the pilot scheme by YouTube, Vevo and the UK Board of Film Classification.
David Cameron warned of the dangers of allowing the worldwide web to become a “lawless space”, saying that the rules for online videos should correspond to content bought offline. The voluntary pilot is expected to run for 3 months from October and will cover the major music labels in the United Kingdom: Sony, Universal and Warner Music.
Apparently, the music videos will go through the same classification system as movies and other video content. As for music videos sold or distributed in any kind of physical form (CDs), which deemed to include 12-rated-plus content, they will also have to go through the same age-classification process. As a result, the music labels will have to submit such music videos for classification.
David Cameron explained that the Internet should not be exempt from the rules of society. He even admitted that he has stopped his children from watching some content on the Internet. A representative for the British Phonographic Industry claimed they agree with the government that too much music videos are now being released on the Internet via various streaming sites like YouTube and Vevo. This is why it is believed to be important to make such content available to the public “in a responsible way”, which is sensitive to the needs and concerns of the parents, for example.
If the experiment proves successful, a key next step would be for the British government to call on digital service providers to use filters linked to those age ratings and providing families with the ability to block video content considered inappropriate for children viewing.

|thatll work like the porn restrictions did in the uk, all customers opted for porn.....|
they should put restrictions on cameron, like breathing restrictions..
|what is the point in this.People will just create fake accounts or just torrent the video.If anything Cameron is helping Youtube go bankrupt.How he is still prime minister f*ck knows.My 2 year old niece has more common sense than this muppet.|
|Although Cameron has the sort of face that incites you to want to slap it repeatedly, he is just the Gimp frontman, its the evils behind him pulling his strings that you want to be casting curses upon, watch the series "Yes Prime Minister" to understand how a government works lol|
|Maybe if they started making good music again instead of using sex to sell their crappy product it wouldn't be an issue, just saying.... and the content of these videos is not really the issue here, its the British attitude towards sex and the lack of correct education in British Schools. Sweeping it under the carpet has never been good idea... just look at how the Dutch teach sexual attitudes.. lowest teenage pregnancy rates in the whole of Europe, plus the red light district and porn on every street corner, go figure.|

|Has this idiot Davy done any good I wonder ?|
|Cameron, you walking turd - the whole point of the Internet is that it's different than the offline world...|
If the tech to filter people's thoughts was here, I bet this twerp would be among the first to put it to "responsible" use.
|Why stop there... why not give an age rating to the MUSIC/SONGS also! LOL!|
|xd funny. shouldnt they know by now people will just make fake accs with birthdays saying their over 18. i can see for lil kids cause they probably wouldnt know how. but older kids will surely know how to defently.||
