I just received this notice in the mail not 15 minutes ago:
"Legal Notice about a Class Action Settlement
If Your Face Appears in a Photograph On Shutterfly, You May Be Entitled to a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.
A $6.75 million settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Shutterfly, Inc. ("Shutterfly"), claiming that Shutterfly violated
Illinois law by collecting and storing biometric data of individuals in Illinois without proper notice and consent as part of a featured called Face
Grouping. Shutterfly denies it violated any law and the Court has not decided who is right."
Now, that sounds like a serious breach of the law if you ask me.
A few years ago, my sister was travelling through Chicago and a couple months later she received some kind of speeding ticket through the mail. Her
face and data from her license plates were apparently photographed from some camera mounted on the highway going through Chicago. I don't recall
that Illinois asked my sister's consent to do this. Wouldn't this be against the same law touted on the card I received? How is the behaviour of
Illinois any different than the supposed violation committed by Shutterfly?
Illinois has got to be the most corrupt place on the face of the earth. I'd even say it's worse than Washington, D.C. Something needs to be done
to Illinois to get them back on the right (legal) track.
