Now if we could only get the regulators and MPs in the UK similarly active in the areas of privacy. They could start with Bluecoat as well as getting the police to understand that RIPA *does* apply to web usage and then work their way up from there.
Unfortunately the ICO seem to be more busy being manipulated by the likes of the DCMS than actually doing their job and the police aren't much better either.
Independent regulator? Don't make me laugh...
