The UK and Europe are also discussing a treaty
The worrying feature of this treaty (discussed in the link) is that it gives American corporations the ability to sue democratic countries for, for example, not allowing their mining exploits on environmental grounds.
It is a race to the bottom.

How about a public list (maintained by HMG) of all blocked websites?

That Google wifi-slurping episode - a lone rogue Google operator??

Use Joikuspot on wifi-enabled phone
This seems to work well although it is WEP only - not really an issue for the way I use it (short sessions out & about).
i can use my ipod touch for decent browsing etc and have a proper phone with real qwerty keyboard (E71).

Basque EU MP? questioning legality of liquid ban
This guy was going to drag the UK government through the courts to stop the ban - this was reported on R4 about 2 months ago. WAnyone know what happened to this?
His arguments were ROTM (right on the mark). Basically that the UK govs assessment was OTT and that they should justify it to the EU. Did they?
Licence not reqd
A licence is definitely not required if you only view prerecorded dvds / videos. We have been through this in long and involved detail with the TV licencing authority. Definitely not required.
