Schneier: ISPs should bear security burden

I see your point, and I almost agree -- almost, but not quite, because
there's a very big problem: consumers have very little choice of which
broadband ISP they can subscribe to. As you note, there are very few
cable ISPs, at least one of whom is also a major content owner. The
LEcs are flexing their muscles to get rid of UNE, which may eliminate
DSL options in many places. That will leave consumers with at most two
choices, and the players in that space seem to love walled gardens. Is,
for example, p2p "abuse"? After all, it uses up bandwidth. I worry
about giving too much power to unaccountable monopolists.
