I was once on a train going to London listening to an obnoxiously loud american on the phone bragging about some science company he was leading a hostile buy of out for, and then how he was going to let the founder go. He repeatedly emphasised the need for discretion as it wasnt public knowledge yet. So naturally I emailed a friend on the business desk of a major newspaper who promptly ran the story...

I would suggest when loud meetings over phone going on, either go and sit close to them and make copious notes (perhaps intejerjecting with 'hi I work for your rival and as this appears to be a public meeting I'm making notes, I didnt quite catch your last point), or trying to join in the meeting by contributing to it too...
