Hi Guys - Long time lurker first time poster - in fact I haven’t been to the Straight Dope for quite some time - we have to pay now?
My question is - What are the pornography laws in the U.K (where I’m from) and the U.S. How do they differ?
My knowledge (which may well be wrong!) is that in the U.K, Child Pornography and Bestiality are illegal, but nothing else. Is that true? I’m pretty sure that the newspapers here print pictures of topless girls aged 16+, but is the age for naked pictures on the internet 18?
So - what can I own? What can I download? What can I take myself? What can I make a website about? How do these rules differ from the U.S?
Disclaimer - This is a topic that came up in a conversation with some friends a week ago - I like to be better informed when we have a discussion!
