Under an agreement with the four largest Internet service providers (ISPs) in the U.K., new and existing customers will have filters applied to their Internet connections to block pornography. The filters will only be removed if customers request it, the BBC notes.

The prime minister also signaled that search engines will be expected to begin banning search terms that could generate links relating to child pornography. If search engines don’t implement the restrictions voluntarily, the British government could impose the bans by law.

Any online pornography that depicts rape will be also banned.

Cameron called online pornography corrosive to the innocence of children. He noted Internet companies had a responsibility to do more to police online pornography.

The new proposals would bring England and Scotland closer to Scotland’s more restrictive pornography laws.
