I'll apologize up front if this offends anyone's sensitivities as to
what is relevant for list conversation... but one sentence in this
Channel4 News story (from what I understand, Channel4 is a very
popular news source in the UK) struck me as perhaps in violation of
some sort of peering and/or transit agreement. Cable and Wireless:

"...even went as far as providing traffic from a rival foreign
communications company, handing information sent by millions of
internet users worldwide over to spies."

The entire article is here:

My question is this: Do willful actions such as these violate peering,
transit, and/or exchange agreements in any way?

Thanks,
