Guilty Until Proven Innocent For This ISP

from the do-you-have-your-P2P-license? dept

An ISP in the UK has decided that all these legal processes with takedown notices and figuring out who’s sharing what with whoever else is just way too much work. Instead, it’s much, much easier to simply declare everyone guilty and block all P2P traffic, unless you come begging for it with a very, very good reason — at which point they might allow you your P2P license, and let you use P2P applications. Seems like a good way to encourage people to go check out the competition.
