Tousley Brain Stephens and Edelson McGuire File Suit Against Microsoft Alleging It Unlawfully Tracks the Locations of Users of Its Mobile Devices
Monday, September 12, 2011
The class action complaint, filed by Michigan resident Rebecca Cousineau, alleges that Microsoft tracks the locations of users of its Windows Phone 7 operating software, even though they tell Microsoft they do not want to be tracked. Location tracking is part of the mobile device's camera application. When users first open the camera application, it asks them if the camera can use their location. The complaint alleges that users who say no are still tracked and that the location data is being used by Microsoft to develop a system that allows targeted advertising to consumers based on their geographic location.
