Facebook hit with $15 billion class action user tracking lawsuit

http://j.mp/JTF0lI  (ZDNET)

   "Facebook is once again being sued for tracking its users even after
    they logout of the service. The latest class action lawsuit demands
    $15 billion from Facebook for violating federal wiretap laws."

Whether or not this suit has merit depends (as far as I'm concerned)
on whether or not genuine privacy violations of import were going on,
and not just technical aberrations related to cookies. For a general
sense of my take on this kind of issue, please see: "Google, Safari,
and a Clamor of Cookie Confusion" - http://j.mp/xGZRcT  (Lauren's Blog).
