    Check out this article "AT&T Faces Backlash Over Selling Customer Location Data But Claims It Acted Legally"

    According to the article, "the company is now coming under fire for its decision to sell location data pertaining to its wireless customers. While AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all said they stopped selling phone location information to other companies, AT&T has announced that it wasn't illegal for it to sell the data. AT&T is claiming it did nothing wrong, just as the FCC has started an investigation into the practice."
