UK 'Porn Filters' Block One Fifth Of All Websites

One in five of all websites are blocked by at least one default ISP filter in the UK, an anti-censorship campaign group has found.

Since the beginning of this year, British ISPs have automatically been imposing filters on new broadband customers unless specifically asked not to do so. By the end of the year, this filtering will have been extended to existing customers too. The ISPs aren’t forced to impose the filtering – although prime minister David Cameron thinks they should be – but all the major players have complied.

The story is too old to be commented.
