Just in case anyone had hoped that Phorm, illegal use of DPI and privacy issues had dropped off my radar (*waves at all those pro-Phormers out there*), think again. You’re still on my radar and will be for a long time to come.
Recently members of NoDPI, Privacy International and the Open Rights Group went to Brussels for a meeting with the EU Commission, including Commissioner Vivian Reding. Remember that it was Commissioner Reding who announced the legal action against the UK “government” for its failure to act properly in enforcing EU directives against BT and Phorm.
The notes from the meeting are posted at NoDPI but some very relevant facts emerged that deserve to be highlighted.
