Josh,You do realize that *everything* about you is already owned by some corporation? Your cell phone records track every location your phone has been, ever credit card purchase you've ever made is recorded, every email you've ever sent through your webmail is retained... and all of those companies reserve the right to do *whatever* they want with that info. A very few of them are regulated, and the rest we simply trust. We currently trust blizzard not to publish our real names without opt in. We also trust them not to publish our phone number and address (publishing your home address and phone number is just as legal as your name in the US for a company like blizzard). You act like they don't have this data on you, but I think you've just failed to think this through in any way and are still happy to trust a company that is more than satisfied to prove it is not worth trusting.This is not a question of whether they can - it is a question as to whether they should.
