Phorm: How it went down

BT will stay under pressure

Mike Jarvis's comment "[Our decision has] nothing to do with cost or privacy" has raised hackles and will ensure that BT will remain under the closest scrutiny.

When questioned about its authenticity Ian Livingston's remark quoted on

https://nodpi.org/forum/index.php/topic,141.msg20217/topicseen.html#msg20217:

" I do not believe he was misquoted. The privacy protection we have put in place with Webwise are set out on http://www2.bt.com/static/i/btretail/webwise/your-privacy.html " is utterly fatuous. Those pages fail to stand up to advertising and ICO standards of fully informing customers.

Downing Street on Phorm: 'Meh'

Ah...the ICO experts...

So the Government is satisfied that the ICO is in a strong position to be able to assess with due responsibility sophisticated Deep Packet Inspection technology such as Phorm's is it?

They must be thinking of another ICO, because the one I know has admitted that there is a lack of IT expertise in the organisation, having brazenly admitted months ago that it was technically complex.

This response from No.10 is utterly fatuous and deeply insulting to all those who signed the petition.

MPs pile pressure on ISPs over Phorm

What Early Day Motion?

My MP can't locate Don Foster's reported Early Day Motion. Is he really tabling one, or is it another MP? Or have we been misinphormed?
