All go overnight on the anti-Deep Packet Inspection front. Phorm are presumably a bit rattled by the developments of the last week (e.g. the EU action, the FOI requests that revealed that Government departments did not give Phorm their blessing, among others) – they have set up a bizarre website (stopphoulplay.com) to defend themselves against the likes of Alex Hanff and the nodpi.org crew. This precipitated an article in the Daily Telegraph (Phorm chief labels critics ‘serial agitators’).
I suspect this will prove to be a collossal own-goal on Phorm’s part. There’s a lengthy thread developing over at the nodpi.org forums, and you can read Alex Hanff’s response (Privacy Pirates and Angry Activists).
