Online porn ban unlikely to work

Published 17/04/2015

The Government's proposal to "ban porn websites" that do not have age verification is welcome, but excessively complicated and unlikely to succeed.

None of these sites are philanthropic. They exist to make money and they only get their hands on it due to the credit card companies and banks. The onus should be on these financial institutions to determine whether the sites have age verification in place.
