+ - Google settles Buzz privacy suit->

Submitted by bouldin
bouldin (828821) writes "This evening, Google e-mailed Gmail users who had been invited to Google Buzz to advise of settlement on a class-action privacy suit. The class action suit alleged privacy breaches due to the default privacy settings when Google rolled out the service. Terms of the settlement include $8 million to cover lawyer fees and fund privacy policy education on the Internet, but do not include cash payouts to Gmail users.

With several outstanding class action privacy suits against Facebook and Zynga, it is interesting to see Google set this precedent. How will Facebook and Zynga respond to their suits?"
