Submission + - UK Secretary wants website ratings, censorship

kaufmanmoore writes: The UK culture secretary calls for a website rating system similar to the one used for movies and downright censorship in an interview with the Telegraph. He also calls for censorship of the internet saying "There is content that should just not be available to be viewed." Other proposals he mentions in his wide-ranging calls for internet regulation are "family-friendly" services from ISPs and requiring sites that host content with a proposal to force takedown notices to be enforced within a specific time interval. Mr. Burnham wants to extend his proposals across the pond and seeks meetings with the Obama administration.
