U.K.’s New Porn Law Is Being Challenged In Court

img_5939A pair of activists are fighting the U.K. government’s measure to implement age-verification for online porn providers. Obscenity lawyer Myles Jackman and feminist pornographer Pandora Blake initiated a resistance campaign called ResistAV: Legal Challenge that’s currently raising funds to challenge the proposed law. They argue that porn age-verification could compromise user privacy by enabling porn website users’ personal data to be collected, open to hacking, or sold to third-parties.

The U.K. government would not provide the software to require users to verify their age, but instead would rely on third-parties—the major concern for privacy and porn advocates. Activists argue this could potentially lead to data misuse or data breaches if personal identifiers are collected, stored improperly, or sold. “Without specific privacy controls embedded in the legislation, there is a very real risk of U.K. adults’ porn habits being outed. The government’s ill-conceived age-verification regime puts up to 25 million U.K. adults at risk,” said the activists.
