Privacy International: UK's new ISP interception plans will be illegal

Media Release from Privacy International.

It has been reported in the press that Virgin Media is planning to deploy the trials across 40% of its customer base without either obtaining a warrant or seeking the consent of all parties involved in the communications.

....interception and processing of communications requires either explicit informed consent from all parties or a warrant.....there is no exemption in the regulations for the purpose of detecting illicit copyright infringement.... Virgin Media’s plans assume that all consumers are guilty of copyright infringement until their communications data proves otherwise....such technology will only lead prolific infringers to move to Dark Nets, Open WiFi networks and Encryption. This will result in a catastrophic number of false positives....
