google buzz lawsuit

Google settled with a bunch of people who didn’t like that the company automatically published their frequent gmail contacts in the Google Buzz community.

For the record I think this lawsuit, along with most internet privacy concerns not related to personal finance, is a crock. If people don’t want these companies to have their information they shouldn’t fffing give it to them. Google is providing a free service, which people use voluntarily, and to which they knowingly upload reams and reams and reams of personal information.

There.
