UK Parliament’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee published its 6th Online Safety report today.

The report looked at everything from Internet child abuse to legal porn and violent content to social media use. The report recommends further action in the UK to eliminate child abuse content and to protect children from online pornography that is legally made available to adults. It also recommends further actions to protect children from bullying and harassment via social media. The report calls upon a range of public and private organisations to achieve these outcomes.

The report commended the Internet Watch Foundation’s (IWF) work with ISP’s thus far to block child abuse, but also warned that such tools were “blunt” and may be challenging to implement when blocking other types of content because of the scale and cost.

You can read the full report online and the list of recommendations.
