Most written peering agreements have a clause that says you can't provide that data unless required to by authorities and only in compliance with applicable local law.
The article says that's still an open question:
"Channel 4 News has been unable to establish whether Reliance Communications was served with a warrant to authorise this and the company has not responded to our calls."

I'll apologize up front if this offends anyone's sensitivities as to what is relevant for list conversation... but one sentence in this
Channel4 News story (from what I understand, Channel4 is a very popular news source in the UK) struck me as perhaps in violation of some sort of peering and/or transit agreement. Cable and Wireless:
"...even went as far as providing traffic from a rival foreign communications company, handing information sent by millions of internet users worldwide over to spies."
The entire article is here:
My question is this: Do willful actions such as these violate peering, transit, and/or exchange agreements in any way?
