Unfortunately, here in the USA, it seems this "building value" is 
infringing on our rights as guaranteed under the 4th amendment of our 
constitution.  I was watching The Colbert Report today and saw where he 
mentioned that companies like Verizon were "building value" into its 
services by data mining and storing/sharing our phone records.  This 
also would apply to how ISPs here in the States are "building value" by 
turning in those users who use P2P networks for file sharing.  I know 
that this may be totally unrelated, but I just thought I would give my 
$.02 USD worth.
