About frickin' time: FCC to Telecoms: Explain Privacy Protection or Pay Up

Marketing calls from companies you wouldn't buy from in a million years? Blame the telcos and their crap attitude to privacy. So, finally, "Federal regulators proposed $12 million in fines for telecoms that failed to file privacy reports about their customers' phone records in 2008. The FCC hopes the fines will prod companies into filing this year's report by March 1 and send a message the government is serious about consumer telephone privacy" (Via Wired News.)
