Regulation may encourage darknets

Following on from an earlier blog entry and a news story gaining momentum in the UK Twittersphere

A thought wandered into my mind (this is occasionally allowed) ... “in an edge connected system, how could any government police the additional of underground dark nets?”

There are many who have the skill and resource to accommodate this, in turn there are many who will willingly turn a blind eye. There are others capable of tapping into systems to make the connection and many systems with suitable weaknesses to allow this.

So, this then begs the question, there must already be some out there (speculation has been that this has been the case for some time). It also raises the issue, that a legislative thump from the UK government will encourage more illicit activity and will move from mere file sharing onto other unsavoury activities.

What are your thoughts?
