Virgin Media starts inspecting for copyrght infringement?

And so it begins. Virgin media are to trial deep packet inspection from CView to "measure" the level of illegal file sharing on its network. 40% of its network will be monitored and the system will identify what it believe to be peer-to-peer traffic and then you packet inspection to see if it contains copyright infringed material.

It will be interesting to see if there's a massive rise in IPSec tunneling as a result.

Anyhow, here's a funky video, now I must run along and listen to my Metallica MP3 collection.*
