Well first of all you could always sign one of the petitions against the 'CCDP' as it is called, there is one such here http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/32400 although I doubt that will get you very far. Another option is the use of privacy tools. Unfortunately these are generally ridiculously complicated, but I have recently found one that isn't and thought you might like to know about it - Startpage.
This is simply a combination of a browser search add-on and a related proxy site. Why I like it (so far, I have only had it for about 24 hours) is that it is so easy to use and it is free (well ad sponsored - but so are all search engines). Simplicity of use is its main selling point. Installing it consists of going here and pressing one button.

It is important to note that the add on only protects the actual search itself. If you click any results from the search your session is now no longer controlled by the 'Startpage' privacy suite, but they have this covered as well in the form of a proxy server. So if you search for linuxmint the first result you will get looks like this:
Main Page - Linux Mint
4 days ago ... Linux Mint is an elegant, easy to use, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution.
http://www.linuxmint.com - View by Ixquick Proxy - Highlight
If you click on the hyperlink (the first line) the site will open normally and whatever information linuxmint sends/receives from your machine will continue to be exchanged. But if you click on the "View by Ixquick Proxy" link the site will open through their proxy server and all privacy measures will continue to be enforced. They do warn you that this may slow the opening of the page a bit, but it is not overly obvious from my own use.
Like I said I haven't had long to use this yet, so I haven't learnt that much about its little quirks - I am sure it has them, but for the combination of ease of installation and use together with the increase in privacy, it has got to be worth a look imo.
