UK Internet Porn Censorship

The Digital Economy Bill has passed through Parliament and  will lead to the mass blocking of internet porn to all UK residents. This includes the free tube sites and is not restricted to UK based websites. The BBFC has been penciled in for the new role of internet porn censor.

The law is currently scheduled to take effect in May 2018.
