Playboy fined over porn websites

Ofcom has fined Playboy £100,000 for failing to protect children from potentially harmful pornographic material.

Two websites owned by Playboy, Playboy TV and Demand Adult, allowed access to “hardcore videos and images” without having acceptable controls in place to check users were aged 18 or over, said the regulator.

Ofcom concluded that Playboy’s failure to protect children from potentially accessing the sites was “serious, repeated and reckless”.
