There is another company who is planning on monitoring channels so they can do targeted ads. They launched hundreds of robots onto freenode and proceeded to log all the channels on that network. They got banned shortly after that. I think they have gotten unbanned, but they were presenting themselves as being non-commercial, and GPLing their software.. however from everything I've been able to find out about them, they appear to be anything but.
