Phone records

In the latest saga to the sale of cell phone records of users in the US, the House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders are demanding answers from operators of Internet sites like "phonebust.com" and"datafind.org" that offer criminals, stalkers and any other paying customer the detailed records of a person's private calls made on cellular, wire line or Internet-based phones. More details can be found in this latest press release. I don't think we will hear the last of this matter, but if it will halt these illegitimate activities, then it will have achieved something. Whatever outcome, there is a need for stronger legal protection in the US.
