[ale] OT: Forget Comcast, I wanna move to Germany!

Based on that logic your Doctor should be able to tell anyone he wants
that you have herpes.   You were in his office and used his diagnostic
tools to find out about it.

The "network" they "own" is interconnected and regulated by the
Government.  The "bandwidth" for wireless is also owned by "the people"
and licensed rather than owned by them.   Even the landline uses
"public" right of way so is not truly "owned" by them either.  For all
these reasons telecom is and should be regulated.   They are selling a
"service" to me - that does NOT give them the right to reveal details of
how I use that "service" to third parties without my consent in the
absence of the due process provided for in the Constitution for
obtaining warrants.

What makes you think that because you are their customer that you own
their network?  It's like going grocery shopping, you can't expect
privacy in someone else's facility, even if you are their customer.
