Internet imbeciles, aka British ISP lobbyists, backtrack on dubbing Mozilla a villain for DNS-over-HTTPS support

Heroes and villains

So having done stuff with ISPA, I'm not entirely suprised. See-

Oscar Tapp-Scotting & Paul Blaker, Global Internet Governance Team, DCMS – for leading the UK Government’s efforts to ensure a balanced and proportionate agenda at the International Telecommunications Union Conference

An odd 'hero' to pick given DCMS's role in things like age verification and content 'management'. Or just being the UK's implementation/enforcement arm for this bit of villainry-

Article 13 Copyright Directive – for threatening freedom of expression online by requiring ‘content recognition technologies’ across platforms

But that also shows a lack of joined-up thinking, or possibly self-preservation. If most content access will occur via DoH, well, sorry, ISP's can't help you manage that problem.

(or, because politics, the nomination of Trump for villain. FCC, EU or DCMS would have been better candidates, but less right-on. Or should that be left-on?)
