PM's Anti-Porn Crusade to Introduce Age Ratings for Music Videos

By Gary Cutlack on at

David Cameron wants to add age ratings to music videos, and will be asking the BBFC to give film-style certificates to promos in an attempt to stop constant access to 1080p footage of popstar bottoms warping the minds of the youth.

Cameron's plan already has the backing of video behemoths YouTube and Vevo, plus the BPI approves of the scheme too, although there's no detail available yet as to how any sort of age gate might be added and enforced.

Also, there's one gaping big hole in the plan, as it'll only cover British-made clips. So no one's going to stop the sound of Miley Cyrus being played repeatedly coming out from under the bed covers of our adolescent males.

According to Cameron, a pilot of the video age rating system will go live in October. [Gov.uk via Mashable]
