Phorm launches data pimping fight back

But what if

I used to work for an organisation that was looking to offer an anti-malware and parental control service, embedded into ISP networks. The thing is that the technology to do this must look at the browsing content, otherwise you cannot detect malware, nor prevent customers going to websites they had requested be blocked.

Now, this was an entirely opt-in service and was also going to be chargeable (so was completely transparent) and was also completely tailorable on a per-subscriber basis.

Now, given that the outcome of the service is significantly different to that of Phorm, would the readers of El-Reg feel any different about it?
