Unacceptable you can type pornography into Google and get porn: FPB

The Film and Publication Board has stated it is “unacceptable” for people to be able to access pornography with a Google search.

The FPB made the statement during a parliamentary hearing into submissions on what has been called its “Internet censorship” bill.

Lawyer and Make Games SA chair Nicholas Hall quoted the FPB during the IESA’s submissions on the FPB Amendment Bill.

The DA has called the FPB bill “unconstitutional”.

If the bill is passed, it said South Africans may no longer upload videos to online channels – such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – unless they register as a distributor and pay a registration fee.
