Australia considers porn site age verification similar to troubled UK system

“A parliamentary committee initiated by the Coalition will investigate how porn websites can verify Australians visiting their websites are over 18, in a move that looks similar to the troubled UK age verification system” writes Josh Taylor for theguardian.com. Australia’s strict classification regime would mean the vast majority of adult websites would be in the focus of this inquiry.Wallace noted that “appropriately classified” adult websites in Australia would not be the focus of the inquiry. Eros Association, which represents the adult industry in Australia, said in a Facebook post it would resist attempts to follow the UK model for age verification.The committee has specifically been tasked to examine the UK’s version of this system, in the UK Digital Economy Act 2017.
