Apparently those of you across the pond are having some interesting developments about who has to cover the tab for all of the letters that are going out to suspected P2P users. While the copyright holders are covering about 75% of the bills the ISPs have to cover 25%. Obviously the ISPs are less then happy about it as are consumers. One of the more problematic issues with the Digital Economy Act is that it turns standard justice on its ear as one has to prove their innocence instead of needing to be proven guilty. In addition to the hassle of this its almost certain that the ISPs will simply pass along the added cost straight to their consumers. All in all a bad day for consumers in the UK.
