Submission + - Amp'd Mobile Hit with FCC Fine

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?"
