Google Play has been automatically transmitting personal information of American customers to the developers of Android apps they buy, according to a trade group.

It is much too easy for businesses to get into legal trouble. Sometimes I can’t believe anyone manages to turn a profit in this regulation rich environment.
Making more laws to try to regulate big corporations actually ensures the existence of them. Smaller players simply can’t cope with the plethora of fines, taxes, loopholes, and regulations; just one regulatory slip up and the associated fines may ruin a small business.
The only way to keep big corporations in check is fewer regulations and other barriers to entry, so that small businesses can enter the market place and compete for market share.
