Shane, 

I was arguing on a pure theoretic level here. Sorry that the details were 
washed away. Yes, you're right, there are codes of conduct, serious self 
regulation and state law limitations. What I meant was only the absence of an 
overall federal privacy system comparable to the EU Directive.

But this is moot anyway as Kevin pointed out that the actors collect each for 
themselves. If in practice, everyone collects by themselves, the sharing is 
less of an issue in this concrete discussion. 

Best, 

Rigo
