big news out today.
A snippet from the link:
"Apple, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Carrier IQ have been sued in a federal court by what the lawyers involved have deemed a “cell phone tracking software scandal.” Law firms Sianni & StraiteLLP, Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy LLP, and Keefe Bartels L.L.C. have jointly filed a class action complaint in a Delaware Federal Court related to the “unprecedented breach of the digital privacy rights of 150 million cell phone users.” The complaint suggests that the aforementioned carriers and vendors violated the Federal Wiretap Act, the Stored Electronic Communications Act, and the Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The suit of course refers to the companies’ use of Carrier IQ, the carrier and vendor-implemented cell phonespyware discovered recently on a number of handsets from multiple manufacturers."
If anyone reading this thread is concerned about the CIQ issue and had the foresight to opt-out of their TM contract's arbitration clause, then they need to seriously consider supporting this suit.
For TM to remain joined in this action, the plaintiffs will require TM customers who are not barred from joining the action by the Supreme Court ruling reported in the following link.
Most TM customers will probably be disqualified, as - most likely - will be a majority of AT&T and Sprint customers.
