Here is a quote from PrivacyRights.org:
Courts and government agencies at all levels of government - local, state, and federal - are increasingly making public records available on web sites. Some jurisdictions are just beginning, while others have done so since the mid-1990s.
The information compiled by online information brokers is typically "public information" - available through public records. At this time, Privacy Rights Clearinghouse does not know of any laws that have been used to prevent or stop companies from publishing this kind of information about regular citizen on the Internet.
