I think people should be able to sue these companies(I don't know if they can or not) I also think that all of this stuff has gotten out of hand. Maybe some legislation is needed to protect against the "protectors". Who watches the watcher?
How would you go about suing them? On what grounds?

You could sue for negligence .. they would have to prove that they did everything that would be reasonably expected of them to protect the data.

BUT! You haven't sustained a loss and you haven't been harmed. I don't see you getting much of a payout.
What would you constitute as a loss?
