ISPs and full packet inspection

The problem is that it is strictly a jurisdictional question. I'm not 
trying to throw it back at you. But I can't advise you w/o knowing the 
specifics of your ISP which I don't want to know. Does that make sense? 
What country? State? Where's your customer base? Do you have multiple 
carriers? Do you service DOD? Outside of US? Do you service EU? SWIFT 
(Financial wires?) etc? Mainly consumer? Commercial? The list could go on.

If you are being prodded by legal on this question then my advice would 
be to tell them that they have to provide that direction.

If you are being prodded by technology my advice would be to direct them 
to legal.

You should be picking up a pattern here....
