The British Board of Film Classification has proposed to the government that online video receive the same sort of ratings certificates as those the board bestows on motion pictures. "If there's some sort of standardized labeling system that people understand, then they know that it's material they can trust," a BBFC spokesperson commented Wednesday. "Whether in a regulatory or an advisory capacity, we believe we have unique expertise and experience to offer," the board said in an annual report. But Simon Davies of Privacy International told the London Times: "It sounds like the most stupid intervention since the registration of fax machines and photocopiers in Communist China."
