Google vs Safari users

The Court of Appeal decided that a lawsuit against the company’s alleged clandestine use of cookies can take place. There are two interesting sentences in the BBC article about the case:

“Google has lost a Court of Appeal bid to stop consumers having the right to sue in the UK over alleged misuse of privacy settings.” This is tantamount to saying “Google wants to make business in the UK without being answerable to the country’s jurisdiction.”

“Google had attempted to prevent the action, claiming there was no case to answer because consumers had suffered no financial harm.” This is tantamount to saying “Google sees no point in accepting its customers’ right for privacy as long as they are not adversely affected financially.”
