Nothing dramatic is the answer. Part of the problem is that they don’t understand a lot of the issues. See, for example, this sharp Media Blog account of last night’s Polis Seminar on Digital Britain.
Speakers at the event included Culture Secretary-in-waiting Jeremy Hunt. And what did we learn from the man who will surely assume control of the UK media following the next general election?
Well, we learned Hunt appears not to fully understand the controversial implications of "net neutrality", though he gamely attempted to answer a question from the floor which he thought was about illegal file sharing, defending in the process the rights of content owners who may ultimately feel the pinch of a tiered internet themselves (check out the BBC iPlayer effect to understand what first brought the net neutrality debate to the UK – clue: it’s nothing to do with file-sharing.)
