Britain Considering Film-Style Content Ratings for Websites

Maximum PC Staff

The ratings that you find on television shows and movies could soon be applied to websites. These ratings would potentially be added in a bid to help police on the Internet and protect our young ones from potentially offensive material.

"The more we seek international solutions to this stuff -- the UK and the U.S. working together -- the more that an international norm will set an industry norm," said England’s Culture Secretary. However, it has also been mentioned that these film-style ratings would only be one possibility.

Internet service providers could also become a part of the scheme, as they may be forced to offer their services in helping to only show sites that would be suitable for children. Though, this looks like it could teeter on the edge of censorship, which would violate Americans’ freedom of speech.

Watch out boys, be sure and tread lightly with this one.
