ISPs should come clean on paedophilia?

In the UK, a name and shame campaign to threaten ISPs who don't take steps to prevent their customers accessing child pornography online could be on the cards, if Margaret Moran MP has her way. Soon, it will be discussed whether ISPs should be forced to declare whether they block customers from accessing child porn. Moran, who is an MP for Luton South, shall introduce a Ten Minute Rule bill to try to force more ISPs to regulate the Web access they make available.

"I want to encourage ISPs to use the technology available to restrict access to child pornography on the Internet," said Moran during an interview with BBC Radio 5 on Wednesday morning. She added that she is prepared to name ISPs who are not taking action to block child pornography.
