Proposing to better police the Internet so as to protect children, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media, and Sport in the United Kingdom's cabinet is proposing international legal norms for websites. At present Secretary Burnham does not believe the UK itself has a body to undertake classifying websites although he is interested in a film-style rating system. Burnham's proposal would involve talks with the incoming Obama administration to lay the groundwork of international legal norms to force change in industry.
