Snippet Contents:

The Censorship of Films Act 1923 and the Video Recordings Act 1989 remain robust pieces of legislation which enable decisions on classification or prohibition of film and video works to reflect the prevailing standards within the State. Online streaming of films as with most internet content does not fall within the scope of current legislation. The regulation of such online content is complicated by the fact that streamed content may often be provided from servers which are not located in the jurisdiction and therefore are not subject to Irish legislation. However, it might be noted that most copyright holders of film/DVD works submit their product, regardless of mode of delivery, to the Irish Film Classification Office for age classification. Once classified, the age rating and consumer advice for such releases are available on the IFCO website, www.ifco.ie. This is an important tool, particularly for parents/guardians, in assessing the suitability of viewing material.
I have no specific plans for legislative change in this area. The Deputy will be aware that the internet is global in reach and that, as a consequence, there is very limited scope for regulation by national authorities.
