Any carrier that decided to allow this in the first place should have a 5 billion dollar class action lawsuit against them. What company in their right mind would think this was OK, or that they would get away with it and lose a lot of money over it. They should all pay.

I completely agree with you. It's not like they're providing a free service like Google and Facebook (not that the behavior would be acceptable), they provide a paid service. Where do they draw the line? The Senator is right on this one.
