Kamber Discusses Internet Suits
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.January 7, 2011
In an interview with paidContent, Scott Kamber of KamberLaw discusses recent class-action lawsuits alleging Internet companies' privacy violations. In response to a question about the increase in Internet privacy suits being filed in recent months, Kamber replied, "People are more aware of online privacy issues. You now probably have two or three dozen researchers nationally that do nothing but Internet privacy...The Internet is where we shop, bank and get our news--so everyone is rightfully concerned about whether we have privacy safeguards online." When asked whether class-action suits are the right approach, he replied, "We are the consumer voice for self-regulation... We're not trying to harm the company; we're trying to redress the harms done to the consumer."
