    Laudable goal. First, I fail to see how they can accurately verify that they person on the computer is not a minor. Kids often have access to their parents wallets, credit cards, etc. So any information provided may not reflect the person at the keyboard. Second, since most of the porn comes from outside of the UK, this would have very little impact as legally they could only go after the UK companies.

    IMHO, the parents can combat this with internet filters and putting their computers in the public areas of the house.
