I hope a few will too.
Because the first few were fought, ISPs expect to get their costs when
obeying a Norwich Pharmacal order *and* lack of active defence doesn't mean
they admit the validity of the request - the order should still be
scrutinized by a court to see if it's proportionate and necessary.
Hopefully we'll get to a similar situation: the ISP shouldn't have to fight
explicitly and the court should require the applicant to prove
