No Secrets

From Slashdot:

ChoicePoint Inc., one of the nation’s largest vendors of personal, financial and legal data is attempting to mass market a background-check software tool-kit which can be used to tap into ChoicePoint’s online databases. Choicepoint requires that you have a business license to run a small business to use this software… …Privacy advocates are cautioning that making background-check software a consumer product could easily put personal information into the wrong hands.

Scary stuff. This clearly crosses a line. (Do you have any idea how easy it is to get a business license? I have 3.)
