So does this apply to ANY website that lets you go to pornography without putting in a credit card number.
Because that must be, what? 20-30% of the Internet? Alright, most won't have a UK base to be fined in the first place, but hell - that's a very, very lax interpretation that affects millions of websites.
I don't know of anyone who uses pornography regularly who actually PAYS for it at all, let alone would even trust their card to be used on the sites they visit. And yet, they are not breaking the law in doing so themselves, but the websites are for not demanding a credit card number?
Just seems like a way to cut all pornography being accessed from the UK worldwide, and getting a lot of people scammed when they MUST enter their credit card details "in order to verify their age".
Honestly, that appears to be something far more overreaching that it at first appears.
