P2P - Easy target. Apathetic government

Hmmm. Odd how P2P has hit the news.

Yet the billions of spams sent daily that costs the industry worldwide hundreds of millions of pounds daily seems to be an issue that no government cares to talk about.

Most of the spam is funded by organised crime yet doesn't no one seems to take this menace seriously.

You can't even report an E-crime to a police station!

If the government wishes to legislate the internet in the UK, lets see them tackle the issue properly instead of targeting P2P with a knee jerk reaction. Of course P2P users are easy targets - spam requires much more investigation to find the perpetrators.

Sounds like our government are taking the easy option out for a quick fix.
