VoIP - data protection implications

I came across this recent article about Voice Internet Protocol (VoIP) and the data protection implications (pdf) arising from the use of this technology. Some of the concerns include the ease with which individuals can tap into VoIP. Users are reminded to update their VoIP firmware in their end devices. I think that with the gradual take up of VoIP services, there should be more awareness by users and the German Data Protection and Freedom of Information Officer, Peter Schaar is right to point these concerns.
