Re: Here's one for ACTA
The content of a web site or email *IS* protected by Copyright.
The UK IPO site confirms; "Copyright applies to the internet in the same way as material in other media. For example, any photographs you place on the internet will be protected in the same way as other artistic works; any original written work will be protected as a literary work, and so on."
thus ISPs are not entitled to make copies of the content of any communication, and then use/adapt it for their own commercial purposes... because that's a commercial copyright infringement... which is a criminal offence under s107/110 of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act.
Quite apart from fraud, computer misuse, and illegal interception.
