Hypocrisy Pays!

Arthur Silber points to this article about how commercial data collection companies are turning their lack of adequate security into a revenue stream. While I'm as horrifed as he is at the bald-faced hypocrisy and irresponsibility involved, I also note that Mr. Silber is a libertarian. What, exactly, is the libertarian response to this outrageous opportunism?

[update: I've sent this to two libertarian group blogs: if all that libertarian talent can't figure it out, it's hopeless]

It's not necessarily hopeless. I've just been so busy lately that I have not had a chance to study the issue--or even to read this post--until this morning. And getting a response today is unlikely as well; I've got a full schedule as it is. Please understand that I am terribly sorry.

I hadn't given up hope; I know people are busy (especially academics this time of year), and didn't expect a response immediately.

If it was an easy question, I wouldn't have asked it. Take your time, please.
