policing not job of ISP's
BBC NEWS | UK | Policing internet 'not ISP's job'
Chief executive of carphone warehouse doesn't believe it's the job of isps's to police internet usage of they're customers on behalf of the bpi, and that they're merely a conduit.
I have to say i agree with what he's saying plus the 2002 act clearly defines them as such.
It's clear that they're under pressure from the govt. and those BPI halfwits to self govern.....and it does worry me that if the ISP's don't comply wilfully then the government wil force legislation on them. But legislation could take years to come into effect, and ISPs should not buckle under pressure from the likes of the BPI due to the threat of legislation.
There is the larger issue of varying policies from different ISP's with regards to bandwidth throttling and inspection of peer-to-peer traffic. But then you'd have to pretty dumb to go with the likes of tiscali or virgin media...who are more likely to bend over backwards for the bpi.
