Wow, Rick! We in the privacy advocacy business would settle, for now, 
for a right to sue! (we don't have in Australia and it's state based 
in the US, not federal, at least from a privacy perspective as far as 
I know). It's not a criminal offence here, just a 'complainable' 
offence, which is totally inadequate. Even the fines, should they 
ever be applied by the Office of the Australian Information 
Commissioner, which now houses the Privacy Commissioner, are 
negligible. I'm just glad someone is going after Google on this one.
