Technology and techniquesapproximately analogous to those used to measure TV audiences were deployed, having a 45,000 UK internet users panel.

    ATVOD chair Ruth Evans said, “We do not advocate censorship. There is nothing in the ATVOD Rules which interferes with the right to provide sexually explicit material to an adult online. But pornography is a product which is produced and designed for use by adults, not children. The law requires that UK on demand services keep such material out of reach of minors and we are committed to ensuring that UK providers of video on demand services comply with the statutory rules. But we have no control over services that come from outside the UK.”
