Abstract

This article deals with the highly criticised Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014, which provides that now the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) regulations apply also to the videos-on-demand (and not only to DVDs), thus narrowing the extent of lawful pornographic videos. It is an occasion to think of freedom and ethics in the liberal United Kingdom.
