There are millions in lobbying dollars making sure this won't happen anytime soon.

Selling peoples' personal information is an emerging market which has everybody salivating, since it doesn't require any big investments; So everybody will try to make sure nothing stands in the way of making a quick buck selling whatever PI they happen to collect in their core business. Free enterprise man! It never has been that easy to "monetize" masses of people since slavery was made illegal!
