Did the internet get away with it?

The BBC reports:

"Video games have been the focus of pretty much all of the coverage of the Byron Review, including our own.

The reason is simple - when it comes to legislation, only the games industry is being affected.

For the internet, specifically virtual worlds, social networks and video sharing sites Dr Tanya's emphasis is on education and awareness.

As I've said in a previous report this is because regulating the net and the morass of user generated content on it is a task no government in its right mind would want to tackle, because it is a geo-political nightmare.

And if you read the official statements and reaction from different quarters of the internet industry all of them are universally applauding the review.

Why? Because they know they have been let off the hook, so to speak."

The story is too old to be commented.
