Metadata should be protected.

I believe there are plenty of privacy laws protecting an individual's data such as name, address, ssn, etc. However, I think there should be laws on metadata created by users. For example location, time stamps, etc are a lot more revealing about a persons habit. Unfortunately, there are no laws protecting users from companies who collect these types of data.
