Loungers discuss Google versus privacy

Kathleen Atkins

In the Social Media forum, administrator ruirib draws Lounge members’ attention to the brief filed by Google in a class-action suit against the company in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.

Google quotes from a precedent-setting case: “A person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.” Discussion ensues.
