SOX has done a fat lot of good in the US - unless you sell software or 
compliance services. I think the consensus is that it is problematic because now 
the responsibility for failure falls somewhere between the regulator and the 
Board/Shareholders.

Elsewhere, the responsibility falls on Directors and Shareholders and there is
