RE: Internet Porn Site Regulation
I love a good bit of context... Saw this article linked on an early piece from the first days of Cameron's crackdown discussing the then proposed porn regs. Some five years later, now that the law is about to be implemented can anyone say they've seen a peep out of the government on the subject CEOP budgets since? Why, if this Bill is really about protecting kids, was the funding for this sort of thing cut? And not just cut once but by 10% over three years. Surely they should be doing everything they could/can to run alongside these reg changes?

This is not a niche or particularly difficult thing to be consistent about is it. The cuts the article discusses are few million quid, chicken feed to a government putting all its eggs into this current lame basket. So why so little effort going into actually educating the young yet again? Is it always better to just demonize and scapegoat? bladewave

Then, more up to date, a survey on the possible AV take up made the news the other day. Since the government seem to put such great store on the survey of opinions from the likes of the NSPCC, let's see them take note of this one from the people they are equally supposed to represent: 67% of survey respondents saying they would be unhappy or don’t know if they would share their details with a random porn firm.

Mindgeek is of course not the only one touting AV gateways. Another, AVSecure was at the expo mentioned above. Ever wondered how they reckon they can keep your data secure this time after numerous failures in the past? Their rep expounded on the company's use of blockchain technology in securing punters' data.

reason.com Wrote:"People generally are fearful of entering in any personal data to access adult content," Steve Winyard, of the blockchain payment platform AVSecure, told a "State of the Industry" panel. That's why platforms like his are built on a blockchain, so individual data is kept private.

"AVSecure's blockchain solution acts as a repository of encrypted tokens that represent age-verified consumers," explains AVN.

In any event, platforms would not be wise to ignore it, suggested Harmik Gharapetian, vice president of sales and marketing at payment-solutions company Epoch. "You are going to lose your traffic from the UK if you don't have a solution."

Here's another earlier article that explains blockchain ID-ing in simple terms and how public blockchains can be combine with cryptographic hashing to provide decentralized repositories of the relevant data.

This, the tech behind bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, is most secure way yet of doing these things according to these companies.

RE: Internet Porn Site Regulation
like i say the only way to fight this now is not to sign up at all
use a vpn, tor or a privacy enhanced browser...
oh and dont go fooling yourself into thinking this is protecting the kids. its not.
its censorship via the back door and unless this fails censorship will only get worse.

oh you must give up your privacy so we can protect you from terrorists.... (maybe stop selling them wepons you cunt)
oh you must give up your privacy so we can protect your children.... (isnt there already a block at the isp level in place for under 18's)
oh you must give up your privacy because GOVERNMENT!... FUCK NO!. (48 government departments can already correlate and quantify your browsing history and now they will have a name and address to compare it to... oh good luck getting a job on your local council or getting voted into parliament or even organizing a protest in future.)

Gizmodo on what Mindgeek plan to do with your data: http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/02/stupid-...-mean-porn hub-will-start-demanding-your-name-and-address-from-april/

UPDATE: Argh! Seems the usual problem occurs even in this kind of url! annoyed Just remove the space between 'porn' and 'hub' in the url to make it work. (Ironic really as one of the things this Bill is being critised for is the almost inevitable overcensorship of general sex related sites it'll bring about.)
