U.K. Obscene Publications Act 1959.

Overview Edit

It is an offence under this Act to publish an obscene article. Publishing includes circulating, showing, playing or projecting the article or transmitting that data. An obscene article is one whose effect is such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it. Depravity and corruption are not confined to sexual depravity and corruption.

This Act does not extend to Northern Ireland.
