Last week saw Ms Tytania of London beat off the UK’s regulator for online TV, the Authority for Television on Demand (ATVOD). Simply put, ATVOD picked on her site, The Urban Chick Supremacy Cell (UC-SC), treating it like a corporate TV-on-demand provider. They wanted to “regulate” her site, including for “material which might seriously impair the physical, mental or moral development of persons under the age of 18”. And they wanted her to pay an annual fee for the privilege.
Ms Tytania sought assistance from Backlash and was prepared to go to court, but the big boss, Ofcom, stepped in and ruled ATVOD, its privately run subordinate, was out of order.
Sound intriguing? It is! And if you don’t know about this (or, worse, don’t care), then you should. Don’t know who Backlash is? Don’t know about ATVOD or what they’re doing? Don’t know about how all this fits in with the evangelical crusade against alternative sexual culture?
