Illegal content identified by IWF to be blocked by 2007

The Government has set a deadline for ISPs in the UK to block access to illegal child abuse material by the end of 2007. This will require all UK ISPs who provide broadband Internet connectivity to the UK general public to prevent customers accessing the content identified by the Internet Watch Foundation. New ISPs would be expected to put measures in place within nine months of offering services. Some providers currently already do this, such as the 'Cleanfeed' project by BT, and WebMinder from Brightview. More information is available from in this LINX news item.
