“You’re all our bitches now”

Good news for the BPI: BT and TalkTalk’s appeal against the Digital Economy Act has been rejected. It turns out that the Act is perfectly fair and decent and nothing to worry about whatsoever.

Amazingly, I have an opinion about that.

“Shareholders and customers of BT and TalkTalk might ask why so much time and money has been spent challenging the act to help reduce the illegal traffic on their networks,” BPI boss Geoff Taylor said. “You’re all our bitches now.”

OK, he didn’t say that last bit. But it’s true all the same. If BT and TalkTalk don’t appeal, we’re stuffed.

    Your first commenter on TR is a good example of the attitude that got us into this mess. :-(

    Yeah. I agree there’s a problem with widespread theft – it happens in my industry too. I disagree that the DEA is the answer to it.

    Just read S2s comment then realised the guy after summed it up better than both of us with the donkey tool comment. :-)
