U2 manager Paul McGuinness recently raised a lot of music industry eyebrows with a speech in which he pushed for greater regulation on access providers.  McGuinness, speaking in Cannes, pointed the finger at tech manufactureres and ISP’s when he said, “Network operators, in particular, have for too long had a free ride on music — on our clients’ content………..It’s time for a new approach — time for ISPs to start taking responsibility for the content they’ve profited from for years.”
