No one ever thinks of good fun times when they think of Ofcom but the media governing body is an absolute necessity and hence there are rules that must be adhered to. The adult phone chat, XXX industry probably knows better than anyone about the stringent rules and yet many adult companies still find themselves in hot water. Take SEL for example, SEL stands for Satellite Entertainment Limited and they hold the licences for 3 babe channels.

Ultimately the penalty was SEL’s problem and as the licensee they had to take full responsibility for compliance. Yikes. There’s no such thing as passing the buck where Ofcom are concerned.
