ISPA rejects calls for ISPs to filter adult content

Thursday 19 April 2012 | 11:11 CET | News
The UK ISPA has responded to the publication of a report by an Independent Parliamentary Inquiry into Online Child Protection. The report calls on ISPs to do more to keep children safe. ISPA Secretary General Nicholas Lansman says that forcing ISPs to filter adult content at the network level, which users would then have to opt out of, is neither the most effective nor most appropriate way to prevent access to inappropriate material online. He added that this was easy to circumvent, reduces the degree of active interest and parental mediation, and has clear implications for freedom of speech.
