Fortunately, none of the information is proprietary. It is all
information that would be available in the public domain and the company
I work for pays has an unlimited use contract with the list provider.
If a person wanted, they could look through public records to get 95%
of the same information (only it would take a very long time to
accumulate a fraction of what I can get in a quick query to a database).
