Information disclosure classic

A few days ago, I spent a couple of hours on a train which by chance lead me to the following information disclosure classic. The person in front of me did some work on his notebook and obviously was not aware that someone might be watching. He was editing a cooperation aggreement that of course showed the involved parties on its first page and allowed me to read some details.

I googled the companies (mostly in the field of smoke detectors and facility management) and from what I saw, they are not really "big players". But I am pretty sure a lot of large companies also fail in protecting their internal information in these situations. A simple screen privacy filter would have done the job. :-)
