eldavojohn writes "Another communications company has been handed a $100k fine from the FCC for not protecting user data. This is related to fallout from the well known Dunn-HP case: "The proposed fines, announced Tuesday, come in the wake of disclosures that detectives hired by Hewlett-Packard Co. — and a myriad of other so-called "data brokers" — routinely acquire personal phone records by impersonating customers targeted in private investigations and billing collection cases." I wonder when they're going to apply these fines to companies that routinely serve private data to government agencies with no warrant?"

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
