Here's an article full of quotes from researchers, vendors and carriers. 
Largely the particular incident with Carrier IQ seems to be a tempest in 
a teapot.  But Paul's concerns about conducting and publishing such 
research in Canada once Bill C11 becomes law are very valid, and should 
be cause for concern for any technologists.

    By now it seems abundantly clear that, contrary to earlier reports,
    the Carrier IQ technology is not actually a "rootkit keylogger."
