Personally I think its wrong to use someone's information without their knowledge. If anybody should be getting money for selling personal details it should be us!

For the longest time I thought you guys were saying click the sanitation below, I'm like when did YouTube get all germaphobic. Ohhh it's click this annotation!

It was meant as a joke, not the most serious discussion opener in history. Just a ridiculous comparison, if your mind can't comprehend such low quality humor I guess there is small chances of breeding for you my friend.

I just don't think it's OK for some conglomerate to collect your personal information and sell it. It's like the notion of privacy doesn't even matter anymore, at least in the case of consumers. But if you're leaking information (not even selling it) that might give the public more information about what actions the government is taking or multinational corporations, they have the right to lock you up or send you to guantanamo indefinitely without trial. Why is this slowing become acceptable?

Well, many young Americans are waking up. In my case, I'm South African and I just happen to be following trustworthy news sources, such as "The Young Turks", for all the political news, and Sourcefed for the more entertaining and lighthearted news.

I didn't say your poor, i said people who complain a lot like yourself are poor. And if you watch this video, the government isn't tracking us, its another company. You just want to complain.

i agree its a natural progression for marketing tactics, however the potential risks and problems with this type of unbridled information will undoubtedly attract some dramatic lawsuits. it will just take some time for the laws to catch up to help protect the consumers again.

that's unfortunately all covered in that terms of service document you didn't read. It sucks, I know
Report spam or abuse
Yeah I have a feeling that Acxiom breaks the human rights system by selling information. And by becoming member on a site shouldn't allow devs to write in their terms of service "by becoming a member of youtube allows us here on youtube to sell your information to earn money on it whilst you are sitting there like broke ass pissed bastard so that we can spit on you and keep selling your information for more profit.". It's not right.

Privacy invasion, I don't want random companies spamming me with coupons I'll never use.

The next generation will have no privacy barriers. Privacy is a "meet the Smith's" scenario. Privacy has no relevance in advanced society. Everyone that is worried about privacy is a closet porn viewer.

If you don't want your information out there, don't put it out there.

Not only will it be the next-gen in marketing, but will be THE way in which we are identified, codified and inputed in the machine. Even more than now we as ppl will be the next Real Estate. Information is power.

Now I can figure out Elliot, Joe, Lee, Steve, and Phil's addresses, camp in a tree outside your houses, drop pee-filled balloons on you guys when you leave. However, it would all be in good nature. Also, it will cross off 5 items on my bucket list :)

This is the next generation of marketing, but it is also a privacy issue and we need to work to stop it. Companies shouldn't be gathering data on us, then selling it without our permission. But it does make the world more aware at what anyone can do with your information...

Fuck, accidentally pressed enter. I meant to say: did you just say I'm poor? I'm getting paid really well over here and I have a cushy job, no complaints about my life. But I'm not going to ignore the government's wrongdoings just because I'm living a good life. There's also the possibility that things'll get worse for everyone. We need the government, but we don't need it to track our every movement and tell us how we should live our lives.

People are just to paranoid. This company doesn't care about "you", it cares about all the people LIKE you. It's not really selling your information, it's selling information on your demographic. For instance, a new fried chicken joint wants to make a commercial so they go to this company and pay them for info and the company says "well, our data shows that black males like fried chicken so you should aim your ad at them". I know, big racial stereotype.
