Submission + - UK to Criminalise Possession of "Extreme" 2

mdwh2 writes: The UK Government has published a bill which includes plans to criminalise possession of "extreme pornography". This would include fictional depictions of violence, and cover private images of S&M acts between consenting partners. Taking a screenshot from a legal film, if done for erotic purposes, could also fall under the law.

The bill has been promoted by groups such as mediawatch-uk. Backlash opposes the law. The plans were previously discussed on Slashdot when first announced.
