About time someone stood up to these anti-democratic practitioners http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28106815
Seven internet service providers have filed a legal complaint against the UK's intelligence agency GCHQ.
ISPs from the US, UK, Netherlands and South Korea have joined forces with campaigners Privacy International to take the agency to task over alleged attacks on network infrastructure. It is the first time that GCHQ has faced such action.
Eric King, deputy director of Privacy International, said "These widespread attacks on providers and collectives undermine the trust we all place on the internet and greatly endangers the world's most powerful tool for democracy and free expression."
The ISPs involved in the action are UK-based GreenNet, Riseup (US), Greenhost (Netherlands), Mango (Zimbabwe), Jinbonet (South Korea), May First/People Link (US)and the Chaos Computer Club (Germany).
I know the UK govt will write itself a blanket get out document called a "public interest immunity certificate" but I hope it puts these cyber criminals on notice that they don't have to attack the entire internet architecture to chase a handful of "potentially" anti-social folks.
