I'm all for it. Pre qualified surfers. Way less free porn. I think this is going to happen and it will spread world wide. Every little bum fuck white label tube site hosting free content, every torent site, every thieving web board will be dancing as fast as they can.

Well..i don't see it as a huge deal. If not even a good thing (as js69 said above).
I'm sure many big players will come out with simple ways to implement it, and it will just be a matter of a script to add.

Pre-qualified? World wide? Bull shit.

A government agency has to be involved, it will be a cluster fuck.

This line from the UK law looks problematic to me. How do they define "on a commercial basis"?
Quote:
The age-check requirement applies to any website or other online platform that provides pornography "on a commercial basis" to people in the UK.
I also think a similar law would have problems passing Constitutional muster here in the US.

What I see happening... Free sites will be unaffected, as they aren't "commercial" in terms of charging for access. But pay sites will have fewer peeps viewing their tours, as peeps will not be willing to expose their credit cards just to take a look.

Here's the full text of the actual statute. See Part 3. As I noted already, a giant cluster fuck waiting for a place to happen.

No, for any content viewed in the UK regardless of origin.

Unhappy Verify Software

So far, I think UK webmasters only have two choices available to get their customers age verified before allowing them hardcore access.

MindGeek or Xcred - both I have recently contacted and have little information available.

It is a shame that https://www.gov.uk/government/public...g-govuk-verify does not offer adult websites this service.

The main disadvantage will be softcore tours and no hardcore video trailers.

Websites can age verify themselves by only accepting credit cards - this is the position I am currently in. However, the new rules to be released may not be satisfied and require more stringent checks even before a credit card is used.

Still too early to know for sure what it will be like...but one thing is important: it is NOT about UK webmasters, but ANY site that can be accessed from UK. This affects everyone.
