ISPA, the UK trade association for ISPs, has nominated the British Phonographic Industry for its Villain of the Year award. The nomination is â€œFor 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, â€œFor buddying up with the music industry and trying to appeal to a younger audience.â€
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.
