It's getting to be a crapshoot these days!

One Mr. Weatherley, strategic adviser to the UK Govt on piracy and things
IP, wants to 'clarify' the exemptions afforded ISSPs in Safe Harbour
Agreements.....and justify the onerous ones placed on search engines on the
EU side.  He's now proposing ISSPs - his term for ISPs and 'other
intermediary service providers' not identified but I give you one guess to
the prize - 'do more' to patrol and prevent IP infringement online, all in
service of - count your fingers and grab your pockets - 'moral

In lieu of 'action' on the part of ISSPs, Mr. here wants to do away with
existing protections from suit for these ISSPs. He's also bothered that
'net neutrality' might be a vehicle for ISSPs etc. to - in his view - shirk
their responsibilities to rights holders.
