It’s not a big surprise to learn from MarketingVOX that a law suit has been filed against AOL for the recent release of search data. It’s really simple math:
Large Tech Company + High Revenue + Screw-up = Law Suit
The suit, seeking class action status, was filed against AOL on Friday, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, writes CNET. The suit seeks at least $5,000 for every person of the 658,000 whose search data was exposed
And the likely winners? The attorneys!
