The poll is hosted by the SVG Developers forum at Yahoo! Groups and you must be a member to vote. More details are available in this message (accessible to everyone). Note that Adobe has not made a commitment to implement the winning feature in a future version of Adobe SVG Viewer.

More details about Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) are available from the W3C, and Adobe.

But the point is that because the US has no data protection laws once you've given them that little bit of personal information to create a login they can do anything they want with it.

This is a complete contrast to Europe where member states like the UK and Germany have had data protection laws for years (the UK's Data Protection Act was created in 1984) and EU-wide data protection laws have recently come into force. This means that any personal data that any European business collects is subject to a lot of strict laws concerning what they can (and can't) do with it. So (amongst other things) they can't reveal it to any other company without your permission, and if you ask them they must allow you to inspect all personal data that they hold on you, and you have the rigt to get any erroneous data corrected.
