ChoicePoint Wins Lifetime Menace Award For Its Threats to Privacy

This is a follow-up to last week's article on Privacy International's annual Big Brother Awards.

As predicted, ChoicePoint won the Lifetime Menace Award. Earlier this year, it was revealed that the US data broker had sold personal information about 145,000 people to criminals.

In honour of British author George Orwell, winners receive a statue of a boot stomping on a human head.
