North Bay residents file class action suit against Yahoo, Google
Google and Yahoo are facing two class action lawsuits, accusing them of invading the privacy of people who don't even use their services.
The suits were filed by three North Bay residents on behalf of everyone in California who is not a GMail or Yahoo subscriber, but who has sent emails to people who are.
They claim the web giants illegally intercept the emails of non-users as part of their advertising programs.
Yahoo has not commented. Google says its service is automated and humans don't read its users' emails.
