The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) recently published a report on sexual offences in the country and a request to review the current laws surrounding online pornography and how it affects those, especially minors, who are exposed it.
In a lengthy 463 page document, the SALRC details concerns about the different natures and amount of pornography readily available in South Africa. The report also makes a number of legal suggestions on how the current laws can be changed. One such change suggests “blocking adult content as a default,” meaning any and all devices with access to the internet in South Africa will have a default setting which automatically blocks adult content.
