How Much is Your Online Activities and Data Worth?

Apparently about $30-$40 to law enforcement agencies....
The 17-page guide describes Yahoo’s data retention policies and the surveillance capabilities it can provide law enforcement, with a pricing list for these services. Cryptome also published lawful data-interception guides for Cox Communications, SBC, Cingular, Nextel, GTE and other telecoms and service providers.

Ouch.  Careful where you step out there.
