RE: Internet Porn Site Regulation
wonder what will happen to sites like this when the new regualtion comes in ? they could argue that the site makes money from the banners and streams and therefore is a commercial site and will need to be behind adult verification ?

Where does this forum stand currently when the new rules are eventually implemented? would the mods seek clarification from the BBFC?

You're probably right, but if so that makes Twitter a site which would have to introduce age verification if they want to comply with UK law. Twitter has a great deal of adult material posted there and takes advertising.

You could say the same thing about Tumblr too & the photo sharing sites

The Digital Economy Bill 2016-17 has today received Royal Assent

placeholder
The Bill introduces measures to modernise the UK for enterprise. The measures have been designed to:

empower consumers and ensure everyone has access to broadband wherever they live
build a better infrastructure fit for the digital future
enable better public services using digital technologies
provide important protections for citizens from spam email and nuisance calls and protect children from online pornography
Minister of State for Digital and Culture, Matt Hancock said:

I’m delighted the Digital Economy Act has become law. This legislation will help build a more connected and stronger economy. The Act will enable major improvements in broadband rollout, better support for consumers, better protection for children on the Internet, and further transformation of government services.

The Act includes includes provisions which will:

give every household a legal right to request a fast broadband connection
give consumers and businesses better information about communication services, easier switching and automatic compensation if things go wrong
cut the costs for new infrastructure and simplify planning rules
enable stronger enforcement of direct marketing laws
create civil penalties for online pornographers who do not verify the age of their customers, and ISP level blocking of non-compliant sites, and;
help protect consumers from “bill shock” by requiring mobile network operators to offer a bill capping facility
During the passage of the Bill through Parliament, a series of useful provisions have been added, including;

powers to ensure that the Crown guarantee of BT pensions has the necessary flexibility to allow BT and Openreach to be separated
powers to tackle the problem of “bots” in the online secondary ticketing market,
an extension of the public lending right to cover e-books, and;
provision to ensure that on-demand television is accessible to people with disabilities.
