‘Opt in-Opt out parental protection not enough’

Direct Save Telecom has warned that a further review is needed to ensure children are protected from illicit material on the internet.

“We see the new regulations aimed at protecting children from illicit material on the internet as a good thing, but we need to go further,” says Chris Charles, General Manager, Direct Save Telecom.

“It is vital that first and foremost we all do as much as we can to safeguard childhood. Children need to be protected as you only get one go at it, so the more that is done to ensure this happens the better.

Parents have to be more vigilant

“We believe more has to be done across the board, as it is not just the ISP’s responsibility to monitor what we can and cannot view on the internet. Everyone involved has to take more responsibility. Parents have to be more vigilant, and in particular the search engines, web hosters and companies responsible for registering domain names need to do more. These companies have tremendous power over what people can view online and are simply not doing enough.

“So not only are these new regulations a good thing, but more has to be done in the future to ensure children are allowed to be children. We believe a further review is needed in the coming months forcing all parties involved to take more responsibility, as this is a problem which is simply not going to go away because there is an opt-in opt-out option.”
