Most has already been said on this topic. Just one comment on the,
superficially sane sounding, idea of getting a declaratory judgement:
forgetting the ethical side of it (do we really want to use data
collected by somebody that doesn't want us to do so?), we would need
such a judgement in -every- jurisdiction where we would want people to
freely use our data. That is so obviously balmy that i don't think it
needs further discussion.
