We 'Umbly Petition....

I'm not sure that these e-petitions do any good, but since they exist, it seems churlish not to use them. Here's another one Brits may be interested in signing:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to not force internet service providers to act as legal representatives for the RIAA and be treated like a common courier.

I think they meant "not to force" and "carrier", but I doubt Gordon's going to be paying that much attention....

I think the word courier is used because of the comparisons with the Royal Mail and other postal systems who are not legally responsible for the contents of the packets that they transport.

I think you're being generous in your interpretation; the termed generally used is "carrier"....
