SPOTLIGHT: Legislators move to curb cell phone records

More news around how easy it is to access peoples' cell phone records. U.S. lawmakers said they would introduce legislation to curb sales of private cell phone records and encourage cell phone companies to better protect customer privacy.  Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, plans to propose a bill that would make it illegal to obtain call records from wireless companies using false pretenses, such as when a party impersonates a cell phone owner to access their personal files. Interesting how this has become the government's responsibility when operators control the information in the first place. Article
