Frankly, there's such a big disconnect between the various claims here 
that we should take a step back and wait for the dust to settle.

How can the same measure be intended to enhance emergency service access 
to caller location data *and* also implement a "three strikes" rule?

All I can guess at this stage (understandably I haven't had time to read 
all the 1000+ individual amendments, nor do I yet know which ones passed 
and which didn't) is that being able to locate mobile Internet users 
makes it easier to send them a "cease and desist" letter (assuming the 
private sector gets access to the same data as the emergency services)? 
Or have I got the wrong end of the wrong stick?
