Submission + - ISPs charge child abuse investigators for data (

nk497 writes: "In the UK, ISPs are charging a child protection agency for access to IP user details they need for their investigations into online-related abuse. The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre has paid out over £170,000 since 2006 on IP data requests related to child abuse cases, and expects to pay another £100,000 this year — enough to fund another two investigators.

The CEOP's CEO said that any ISP which can't afford to give the police such help "simply can't afford to do business.""
