Public Supports ISP's vs Paedophiles

Posted: 16th Mar, 2005 By: MarkJ
StreamShield Networks latest research highlights how 89% of the public would support ISPs if they were to track the visits made to child abuse and paedophilic Internet websites. Similarly 93% would back ISPs passing that data on to the police:

“The freedoms offered by the Internet should never extend to protecting those who derive pleasure from harming the most innocent section of our society,” comments Simon Gawne, CEO of StreamShield. “The British public recognises this and is united in its support for service providers that tackle this plague head-on. Our research demonstrates that the public firmly believe that those who access websites of a paedophilic nature should not be able to seek refuge behind claims of privacy violation.”

The study also shows that 90% of the country’s adult population would support the voluntary blocking by ISPs of access to child abuse and paedophilic web sites, and 89% said they would support the official monitoring of the content of such sites.

The research, commissioned by StreamShield and carried out by MORI, is particularly significant as children’s charity, NCH, identified earlier this month that the number of people cautioned or charged over internet child p**nography offences has quadrupled between 2001 and 2003 to a record 2,234 cases - causing the organisation to state that, “…child p**nography on the Internet is a modern curse and ISPs have a critical part to play in stamping it out.”

Gawne concludes: "One way or another, access to child p**n on the net should end now. Our own data indicates that it would cost the UK ISP community less than 50p per child to block access to these sites. This research clearly indicates that the public want a clean and safe Internet."
