The Petition follows on the heels of reports that AT&T has been selling records of customers? phone calls to the C.I.A. Upon further investigation, Public Knowledge found that all four major mobile carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon) have privacy policies that indicate they believe it is okay to sell or share similar records.
Public Knowledge was joined by the Benton Foundation, Center for Digital Democracy, Chris Jay Hoofnagle, Common Cause, Consumer Action, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Electronic Privacy Information Center, Free Press, the Center for Media Justice, the New America Foundation's Open Technology Institute, and U.S. PIRG.
