Netflix Video Privacy Class Action Settlement
July 27, 2012
If You Are a Current or Former Netflix Subscriber A Class Action Settlement Could Affect You.
A class action settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Netflix, Inc. (“Netflix” or “Defendant”) pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (styled In re Netflix Privacy Litigation, No. 5:11-cv-00379-EJD), alleging, among other things, that Netflix kept and disclosed information, including records on the movies and TV shows its customers viewed, in violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act and other laws, according to the Netflix Video Privacy class action settlement notice.
The Netflix Video Privacy Settlement Class includes, unless otherwise excluded, anyone in the U.S. or its territories who is a current or former Netflix subscriber as of July 5, 2012.
Under the Netflix Video Privacy class settlement Netflix has reportedly agreed to change its data retention practices so that it separates (known as “decoupling”) Entertainment Content Viewing History (that is, movies and TV shows that someone watched) from identification information for those subscribers who have not been a Netflix for at least 365 days, subject to certain exceptions.

It's all tracked, who cares?

I suppose when they come to your house to haul you off under the Patriot Act or NDAA, claiming you are some kind of terrorist because all you watch is spy movies or whatever on Netflix, you still won't care.

I care but what can be done about it is the question.
