More on Section 92
It seems no one has anything good to say about the section 92 ammendment which is due to become law this Saturday (unless I have my dates wrong). The National Business Review ran an article which, though it citicised the law for being shoddily written and of little benefit, claimed that ISPs wouldn't want to cut off customers since doing so would reduce profits. Presumably though, there is
some kind of penalty they must face if they don't act when the law compels them to. Unless the ammendation is even more useless than I suspect, being tootless and unjust. It's possible I suppose. If it becomes law I guess we will find out.
