Privacy Policy? What Privacy Policy?

It what may be the most brazen violation of privacy terms I have ever heard of, Gratis Internet of Washingon D.C. has been accused of selling data on millions of its customers, despite a privacy policy that says it wouldn’t do so.

The sites collecting the now well-distributed data include FreeiPods.com, FreeCDs.com, FreeDVDs.com and FreeVideoGame.com – you know, those bastions of the new economy who business models are, well, more than a little obvious.

Of course, Eliot Spitzer is the guy doing the accusing, and while we know what his motivations are, you gotta love him nonetheless.
