Another day, another lawsuit. A group of nearly 27,000 South Koreans is suing Apple for £15.8million over what they claim are privacy violations from the collection of iPhone user location information, reports “Mail Online” (http://macte.ch/LXQfW).
Each person in the suit is seeking one million won (£568) in damages, according to Kim Hyeong-seok, one of their attorneys. He took Apple to court earlier this year over iPhone privacy and was awarded one million won.
Hyeong-seok told “Mail Online” that he expects the first hearing in the new case to take place in October or November. If the court in the southern city of Changwon rules in favor of the plaintiffs, the total award would come to about 27.6 billion won (approximately US$23 million).
