But eircom isn't going to monitor P2P or BT at all. The alternative that
all the ISPs feared was that they would agree to do such a pointless
doomed to failure expensive thing.
The 3rd Parties of the Rights Holders are not doing traffic analysis or
deep packet inspection.
They are peering P2P to catch IPs, thus if it's a Linux ISO it's of no
interest to them. Similarly if they have honey pots, it's not going to
be a mirror of heanet server content is it?
