More on Borders' customer list

In an earlier posting, I noted that the privacy issue was raises in sale of the Border’s customer data to Barnes & Noble. Last week, however, the judge in the case went ahead with the sale after both sides agreed to give customers the right to opt out. As Publishers Weekly and AP are reporting, that email went out today. And just to highlight the sensitivity of the issue, already, the Attorney Generals of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania have issued statements warning customers that this is an opt-out system.
