Dollars for Data

Leave a comment

It is no surprise that data has a dollar value.  A classic example is the ticker data that flows from stock and futures markets.  A real-time feed of New York Stock Exchange stock prices for use by online media outlets, for instance, costs $25,000 per month.

All personal and corporate data is for sale, from legitimate and black-market brokers alike.  Quick and dirty web research offers the following shopping list:

  • individual criminal histories – $13.95
  • database of US physicians – $239.99
  • DNA for tracing family history – $99
  • 4 million fresh email addresses – $75.95 per week
  • major league baseball game statistics feed – $1,900 per month
  • consumer mailing list – 2.5 cents per record
