“History has shown us that whenever a law opposes the will of the people, it doesn’t tend to do much. It may have been illegal to tape songs off the radio, but there’s little appetite from police officers to cart schoolchildren off to prison for it. And so it is here.
This law has been much derided and ultimately proven to be unworkable by the people charged with enforcing it. The ICO is simply doing the inevitable: ignoring the law as much as they can, until it goes away.”
