Why isn't anyone talking about damages? 1) Association metadata singlehandedly funds/powers Google/Facebook, and has discrete (astronomical) value, with actuarial tables and everything. I submitted to a human experiment (captcha) for the quid-pro-quo to post this. And it pays someone's salary. I think most people would like to see a jury on this, but I gather federal civil jury demands are a harder sell without damages. This isn't just about privacy - that information is worth beaucoup.
