ISPA, the UK trade association for ISPs, has nominated the British Phonographic Industry for its Villain of the Year award. The nomination is “For its heavy handed approach against consumers rather than engaging in constructive dialogue with the Internet industry when dealing with filesharing.” David Cameron gets a nomination too, “For buddying up with the music industry and trying to appeal to a younger audience.”
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Mind you, it’s possible that the ISPA has gone nuts. Suggesting Facebook gets a hero award for withdrawing its invasive ad system, Beacon, certainly suggests so.
