RE: Internet Porn Site Regulation
The bill just makes the commercial viability of an explicit free to air web show almost non-existent.

That is in fact the real point of this bill. It is outright censorship via the back door.

Democratic governments can no longer say they censor anything but the most vile content in this day and age. So they get round it by calling it after the fact regulation. In this case by requiring any explicit free website (no matter where they are based) to carry the cost of Adult Verification they effectively remove the UK from such a market. No free porn supplier is going to bother with or be able to carry such a cost for a relatively small market like the UK and so the regulator (thought to be the BBFC in this case) will have the right to fine or pressure your ISP or the credit card company of any transgressing site.

Adult Verification is only feasible for sites that can incorporate it into existing charges.
In fact as elgar says most will already be doing it via their credit card portals. (Beautifully this process requires nothing too costly from the government.)

Sharon White, head of Ofcom, in her recent (IIRC) RSB appearance was proudly reiterating how they are regulators not censors. They all do this. But I ask you, if their direct actions result in censorship how does the name on the tin make a happeth of difference? If you limit the distribution of certain types of content you're a censor.

Do these new laws apply only to British-based web content? If not then I suppose LSL, H&W and Foxxx will be similarly affected.

How will this forum be affected? There are thousands of videos and images on here that would be deemed unacceptable for a free-to-view site.

It applies to all sites. If they are based outside the UK and they dont comply with the regulator, the regulator will put pressure on ancillary service providers like payment providers and web hosts to stop working with them. If that does not succeed they will ask UK ISPs to block the site.

The regulator will go after the biggest sites first like tubes and chaturbate etc.

This article goes into the specific costs of one the cheaper non-credit card solutions to Age Verification: https://www.inverse.com/article/31314-tu...dora-blake

The rep quoted is one of many no doubt that can't help rubbing their hands at all of this. His denials of the concerns at the end of the piece mean nothing when the crucial point is that any solution to this has to by definition store your i.p. address against your 'yes' to porn activity. He must know full well that this alone is the major secruity vulnerability.

If any of my uploads are down please pm me and I'll get them back up asap.
