Oprah gets petition for promoting RealAge.com

My colleague Jim Harper over at the Technology Liberation Front discusses the RealAge.com controversy and why the current petition to Oprah is a better way of dealing with the issue than running to the FTC for privacy help. In March, a NYT article exposed how website RealAge.com sells the data it gathers to pharma companies. The petition, created by a group called Patient Privacy Rights, asks Oprah to tell her audience about the privacy issue since her frequent guest Dr. Mehmet Oz was promoting the site on her show.
