Internet Youth Protection for Great Britain Ahead
Soon, British adults will be asked to determine as to what extent their internet at home will be censored. In order to protect children from internet pornography, grown ups are supposed to answer the question "Do you have children at home?" once (and/or every time a new computer is bought or internet provider is changed). If the answer is YES, a censoring filter software has to be installed and configured for the internet usage of the kids by answering additional questions. But that's not all. The internet providers have to be a little busier, too, since it is expected of them to check whether the person that sets the filtering rules is in fact at least 18 years old.
It's not yet known what happens when the parents lie and just claim that they have no children - be it because of laziness, ignorance or the fact that their kids are already "protected" in a different manner. But since the British parliament hopes that the internet providers will encourage the parents to actively use these filters, it's quite possible that a healthy suspicion will become the standard in this matter.
