Burning Records

Librarians Receive Advice on Law and Reader Privacy - "The speakers all agreed that proper federal requests for data should be dutifully complied with, but only when an official court order is presented, and not just because an FBI agent asks for information. There was also a general consensus that fewer records should be kept by libraries and that even necessary records should be destroyed after use." I wonder how it will work in the future when libraries are web services.
