You're right, people generally know their information is being downloaded, they just don't realize what it can be used for and they don't have a choice. These big companies have almost monopoly power so you either agree to let them use your data or you can't use their product. And they all collude so there is nowhere to go for the consumer.

I'm normally not a big fan of government intervention but it seems like there needs to be an update on the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and other such trust busting laws.
