Police files were obtained by Netherlands-based NU, which reported that Skype passed along the teenager's username, real name, e-mail address, and home address. The Epoch Times reports that ' Significantly, Skype handed over the information without receiving a court order, which is in violation of Skype’s stated privacy policy.'
