Push begins for mandatory internet content ratings

Push begins for mandatory internet content ratings

by In the news
Saturday, December 27. 2008

The Culture Secretary in Britain (yes they have one) is making recommendations to the new Obama administration to create a new international ratings agency for the internet. This would be similar to the motion picture industry and focus on age-level of appropriateness. The Secretary stated "More ability for parents to understand if their child is on a site, what standards it is operating to. What are the protections that are in place?”

Is this necessary? Could it work? Would it be against free speech or a good idea to protect children?

Probably wouldn't work. How do you verify someone's age on the internet?
