The UK registrar, celebrated as a pioneer of electronic company accounts,
has been sticking photographs of company accounts on its website since the
1990s. The British tradition was that companies filed on paper. The
registrar adapted to the internet age not by getting electronic documents
but by taking photographs of the paper ones. Members of the public were
able to get company information if they were willing to copy it out by hand.

The Condem coalition government changed all that in 2011 when it started
making companies file their tax returns as data. But while Companies House
has since got two-thirds of company accounts as data as well, it has still
been sticking the photocopies up on its website.

"The problems of our economy have occurred not as an outgrowth of
laissez-faire, unbridled competition.
They have occurred under the guidance of federal agencies, and under the
umbrella of federal regulations."
Senator Ted Kennedy, in defending trucking deregulation in 1978.
