BT tickles the BPI belly

According to letters seen by the Register, BT has followed Virgin in sending warning letters to customers the record companies claim are file-sharing.

BT didn't like The Register suggest they'd joined the BPI's side:

BT has not changed its policy for dealing with copyright infringement and we have not joined any "crusades". We do ask that our customers adhere to our terms and conditions which state that they must comply with all relevant laws and not infringe the rights of others.

Although given that the BPI clearly is on a crusade, and that BT has decided to help them police content on the web, it's hard to see how they can feel they've not joined in. It's a bit like a weapons manufacturer denying they're joining in the war.
