More on Free iPods

Almost exactly a year ago I made a short post linking to a Free iPod article at SFGate. Today I read on Wired News that the New York Attorney General has a victory against an e-mail marketing giant that bought one of these shady lists collected by offering free iPods and other stuff in exchange for lots of personal info. The company has "agreed to a $1.1 million fine for knowingly buying marketing lists from companies with privacy policies that promised not to sell or transfer the lists to a third party."
