Do any keyword research programs ever "phone home"?

    Seems like a pretty sneaky tactic that would be easy to implement.

    There could be some bit of code in there where if a keyword meets certain parameters (low competition, high AdSense payout, etc.) the program would send a note back to the seller giving them the stats. They could get good keywords for free and YOU would have more competition, then, in the good niches you "discovered" on your own.

    That'd be terribly clever of them, I guess it's possible but I don't know if someone would be that much of a douche, haha!
