A French court on Friday, has rejected a claim brought by two children's campaigns calling for the blocking of major porn websites in France.
The judge rejected the claim because the court facing time pressures had not been able to hear arguments from
the sites' publishers. The anti-porn campaigners had hoped for the blocking of nine top porn sites, including PornHub and Xvideos.
One of the ISPs being asked to censor the porn, Orange, noted that it already offered tools such as parental
controls to limit children's access to online pornography. Samuel Comblez of e-Enfance, one of the children's campaigners, said: It's not a completely lost battle, adding that it was now examining other ways to restrict access to the sites.
