If your meta data ia worth millions to the NSA/CIA ( What they PAID ATT for YOUR data) Then why aren’t YOU getting a cut of YOUR personal gold mine! Your DATA!
Rules are made to be broken, the old saying goes, and the current rules on MINING your data without your permission should be changed!!
Call, write congress and do some research of your own on this issue ….. Remember they (congress) set up all the rules,
Then watch as the gold coins fall into your cash register instead of companies and others pockets….
Senators Udall, Wyden and Rockefeller are very much interested in changing meta data privacy rules to the publics favor.
AT&T gets paid millions by the CIA to give up user data

According to Savage’s sources, however, no court order is necessary for the sort of specific collaboration cited in the Times, and the exchange of millions of dollars annually suggests that the relationship is one that involves legitimate business transactions — with one party being the intelligence arm of the United States.
But as Savage and others were quick to point out, the CIA’s conduct in this case all too much emulates the behavior of another major intelligence community player: the National Security Agency. The NSA has maintained an alliance with AT&T that has been highly documented for years, raising additional questions about the immense scope — and cost — of the federal government’s efforts to infiltrate the telecom industry.
In 2007, former AT&T technician Mark Klein blew the whistle on a program that involved the NSA tapping all Internet data traveling into one of the company’s major California data hubs. Then just this year, intelligence contractor-turned-leaker Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA was collecting millions of call records from multiple telecoms on a regular basis while also working hand-in-hand with certain Internet services to eavesdrop on online communications. According to one document released by Snowden, the NSA has paid those companies millions of dollars in order to cover the cost of maintaining that Internet surveillance program, code-named PRISM.
