More on the campaign to stop the government implementing the digital economy bill, that iniquitous piece of legislation designed to close down the porn industry and to stop you as adults looking at perfectly legal content on the internet. As usual in cases in cases like this their chosen agents are the backward thinking BBFC and so thanks to the Open Rights Group for the information below.
We have launched a spoof recruitment campaign to highlight absurd proposals in the Digital Economy Bill, which will give the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) the power to classify and censor websites, just like they do for films.
The BBFC will decide if porn sites are checking and monitoring the age of their users. If they’re not, the BBFC can tell ISPs to block sites – even though their content is legal. The only problem is that the Internet is massive so the BBFC can’t be expected to do it all by themselves. So we’re running spoof adverts for Internet Censors, who can help the BBFC classify all of the adult content on the web.
