UK Porn Industry May Check User ID

UK Porn Industry May Check User ID

The UK citizens may soon face identity checks to get access to adult content online. Porn industry suggested a scheme for adult websites to verify visitors’ identity with such institutions as banks, credit reference agencies or the NHS.

This suggestion comes ahead of an expected new legislation that would demand age checks for online porn and threaten a block on any websites that fail to comply. However, critics point out that the plans are a privacy nightmare and resemble a step towards Chinese-style online restrictions.

It is clear that the porn industry is trying to anticipate a new legislation with age checks. The Digital Policy Alliance, representing online companies, proposed to use data “already on file across the government or the private sector”.

According to a suggestion, porn websites would offer their visitors a choice of identity providers to vouch for their age. After a user signs in to the provider, a check would be run against the information it holds. When it comes for privacy issues, the alliance suggests that checks would pass through an “anonymizing hub” – in such a way, the provider will never know the reasons for the checks, and the site will never know users’ true identities.

In fact, the UK-based websites had to tighten age checks back in 2010 – now they use credit cards, the electoral roll and credit reference agencies, which is regarded as quite intrusive means that can deter many customers. At the same time, critics warn against any system linking use of adult sites to identity, because it will make detailed records of web-browsing history.

It should be noted that the Conservatives made age verification for online porn a key part of their election pitch in order to stop exposure of the underage to harmful content. Of course, few politicians would oppose child protection, so the new law will easily pass.

At the same time, critics point at overblocking possibility. For instance, Facebook has also been criticized for censoring pictures of nursing mothers. As for the automated filters introduced by British Internet service providers since 2013, they blocked sex education services and even refuges for victims of domestic abuse. Finally, the industry observers point out that tough regulation and stiff competition from abroad will influence the industry – if foreign porn websites get blocked, it will be boom time for homegrown pornographers.

No avatarIt will be a economic benefit for the home industry and the economy as a hole. They will contribute in current account . Government should protect its home industries. However, Consumer choice will fall it foreign site gets blocked. There might be no more incentive for better quality in the long run as they will face no more competition .
