"UK will start jailing the people who trade in email addresses, or any other
personal data. The current Data Protection Act only fines people who do that,
but the money one can make from trading in personal information was far higher
than the measly GBP 5000 one had to pay if caught. The new regulations will
result in a two year prison sentence for violating the Act."
