NebuAd is a company we've discussed
before, that basically works with ISPs to use your clickstream data to send targeted ads. It's quite similar to Phorm, which has received plenty of attention
for its questionable behavior over in the UK. Now, some researchers have looked into the details of what NebuAd really does
... and it's not pretty:
Perhaps Charter Communications and other ISPs that have signed up
for NebuAd should have researched things a little more thoroughly. Congress is already investigating
the legality of something like NebuAd, and one assumes that a report like this may find its way to many of those politicians pretty quickly.
