UK users forced to choose if they want Web blocks
London: A coalition of UK Internet providers says its customers will have to choose whether to have access to pornography and other potentially unsavoury websites, rather than just being given the option to block them.
BT, Sky, Virgin and TalkTalk say they`re seeking to give parents a more "active choice" in how to control the online content being viewed by their children.
Providers have been offering their customers parental blocking software for years, but family advocate Reg Bailey said Tuesday that forcing the issue would help persuade parents to deal directly with the issue of objectionable content.
However, some civil liberties advocates worry that the move will lead some adults to get used to and come to accept online censorship.
