Missed a bit here - I was thinking of me placing something on the 'net
by ftp'ing it to mywebserver, and whether that ftp is a communication in
RIPA terms, and therefore interceptable.
mywebsever is (allegedly) at an ISP who do not look at the content
therein, but for the sake of argument suppose it is a physical server in
in my London flat (I wish).
I think it may not be a communication, as it does not have an intended
recipient - except perhaps me, as the server operator, as opposed to me,
as the sender?
I don't know.
but maybe ftp prolly cannot be intercepted because it is not a
communication, even if some b#*#*#*d sees it all.
