Woman Files Suit Over iPod
CONSUMER PRIVACYNovember 2, 2012
A Surrey woman has filed a suit in British Columbia’s Supreme Court alleging Apple’s iOS4 operating system violates users’ privacy rights, The Vancouver Sun reports. Amanda Ladas says her iPod allows anyone with “moderate computer knowledge” to determine her location. The suit, which seeks class-action status, claims Apple has “violated the privacy and security rights” of Ladas and other potential plaintiffs and “has engaged in deceptive acts or practices” entitling plaintiffs to damages.
