Internet Privacy: Are You Due Compensation From Google?

Google sued for ‘snooping on iPhone users’: Will 5.4mn Brits get compensation?
Google is facing yet another lawsuit arising from its abuse of internet users’ privacy rights. This time the world’s most evil corporation (except for Facebook,) is being sued over allegations that it collected personal data of millions of  iPhone users without offering an opt out or even putting an advice in the small pring of their terms and conditions. Up to 5.4 million people in Britain alone could be entitled to compensation if the class action is successful.

A group led by Richard Lloyd, the executive director of consumer body Which?, claims the internet giant unlawfully collected personal information by bypassing the default settings on the iPhone and tracking online behavior of people using the Safari browser between June 2011 and February 2012.

Google then allegedly used the illicitly gathered data in its DoubleClick advertising business, which enables advertisers to target content according to a user’s browsing habits. Such action is a violation of trust  Lloyd said. He added that the lawsuit is unprecedented and represents “one of the biggest fights of my life.” At this point the lawsuit only applies to data gathered from  iPhones. If the case goes against Google it could change the way we use the internet as ad – funded websites will no longer be viable.

The lawsuit, filed in London’s High Court, alleged Google’s hack, known as the ‘Safari Workaround,’ breached UK data protection laws by taking personal information without permission.

“I believe what Google did was simply against the law. Their actions have affected millions, and we’ll be asking the courts to remedy this major breach of trust,” Lloyd told the Guardian. “In all my years speaking up for consumers, I’ve rarely seen such as massive abuse of trust where so many people have no way to seek redress on their own.”

Lloyd, who has set up the group Google You Owe Us, added: “Google owes all of those affected fairness, trust and money. By joining together, we can show Google that they can’t get away with taking our data without our consent, and that no matter how large and powerful they are, nobody is above the law.”

The idea that internet companies are not above the law will surprise Google executives whose actions show they believe Google can choose which laws it obeys, and send shockwaves through the Silicon Valley tech giants, whose profits have been swelled enormously by their being allowed to play fast and loose with privacy and consumer protection laws.

Roughly 5.4 million people in Britain had an iPhone between June 2011 and February 2012 and could be eligible for compensation, according to the claim. Although the size of any payout would be determined by the court, Lloyd said he expected each claimant would receive several hundred pounds.

Lloyd has secured £15.5 million in backing from Therium, a company that funds litigation and has previously backed group claims such as the consumer action against Volkswagen in the scandal over diesel emissions.

A Google spokesperson said: “This is not new. We have defended similar cases before. We don’t believe it has any merit and we will contest it.”

He may well be wrong about that. While Microsoft have always taken a ‘caveat emptor’ approach to security flaws in its producs, Apple guards its intellectual propoerty far more assiduously, and this breach was only achieved with a deliberate hack.

The case is the first time such a collective action – in which one person represents a group with a shared grievance, akin to a US-style class action – has been brought in Britain against a leading tech company over alleged misuse of data.

Google has already paid millions of dollars to US states and the US Federal Trade Commission over the Safari security bypass, which also suggests the smug spokesperson quoted above is on very dodgy ground.

Google’s Schmidt Has Track Record Of Involbvement With Obama, Clintons

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Eric Schmidt is a piece of shit. In the past it has been leaked information on how creeply the planet’s most evil corporation had become on Schmidt’s watch. The man seemed to have no moral compass. Other times we attacked Schmidt when he had brazenly spoken of Google’s world domination plans and the strategies they had developed for crushing those who tried to defend, privacy, free speech and competition.

Today’s story is something different though hardly news.

Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google’s parent company Alphabet, announced that the internet conglomerate will ‘de-rank’ Russia Today, or “RT’s articles in search listings, on grounds that they are Kremlin propaganda. The question must be asked, is Schmidt acting out of concern for free speech and freedom of information, or are his motives driven by a more sinister agenda?


Executive Chairman Alphabet Inc. Eric Schmidt. © Bertrand Guay / AFP


The 62-year-old billionaire has never hidden his political leanings, he was a strong supporter of Barack Obama and was a major figure in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign team long before she officially announced her candidacy. In one of the John Podesta emails leaked by Wikileaks, that did so much damage to the Clinton campaing by showing her to be self serving and thoroughly dishonest, Podests told her soon-to-be campaign manager Robby Mook that he had met with Schmidt in April 2014, more than a year before Clinton told the American public that she was hoping to become their next president.

“I met with Eric Schmidt tonight… He’s ready to fund, advise recruit talent, etc. He clearly wants to be head outside advisor, but didn’t seem like he wanted to push others out. Clearly wants to get going. He’s still in DC tomorrow and would like to meet with you if you are in DC in the afternoon. I think it’s worth doing…” Podesta wrote in the email, which was published by WikiLeaks last October.

Another email, written just two weeks later, showed Schmidt discussing campaign ideas with Clinton aide Cheryl Mills. “Let’s assume a total budget of about $1.5 billion, with more than 5,000 paid employees and million(s) of volunteers,” he said.

He went on to promote ideas on how to utilize technology in the campaign. It wasn’t long before  The Groundwork, founded by analysts and engineers who worked on Barack Obama’s campaign and funded by Schmidt, became Clinton’s top technology provider.

“Eric recognizes how the technology he’s been building his whole career can be applied to different spaces. The idea of tech as a force multiplier is something he deeply understands,” The Groundwork’s Michael Slaby told Quartz in 2015. (Gratifyingly it became obvious he did not understand all that deeply.)

During campaigning photos forwarded to Politico showed a smiling Schmidt at Clinton’s election headquarters, complete with a “staff” badge.

Schmidt’s efforts to get Clinton elected, along with Google’s overall efforts to do the same, were addressed in a November 2016 report by the Campaign for Accountability ‒ a non-partisan, non-profit organization that aims to expose misconduct and malfeasance in public life ‒ and its Google Transparency Project. The document concluded that “Google executives and employees bet heavily on a Clinton victory, hoping to extend the company’s influence on the White House.” It added that “had she won the election, Clinton would have been significantly indebted to Google and Schmidt, whom she referred to as her ‘longtime friend.'”

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange also brought up the relationship between Schmidt and the US establishment in his 2014 book, ‘When Google Met WikiLeaks.’ He describes a 2011 encounter with Schmidt in Norfolk, UK, where Assange was under house arrest at the time.

“I had been too eager to see [Schmidt as] a politically unambitious Silicon Valley engineer, a relic of the good old days of computer science graduate culture on the West Coast. But that is not the sort of person who attends the Bilderberg conference four years running, who pays regular visits to the White House, or who delivers ‘fireside chats’ at the World Economic Forum in Davos,” Assange wrote. “Schmidt’s emergence as Google’s ‘foreign minister’ – making pomp and ceremony state visits across geopolitical fault lines – had not come out of nowhere; it had been presaged by years of assimilation within US establishment networks of reputation and influence.”

Schmidt’s announcement last week that Google was to ‘de-rank’ RT’s articles comes despite Google’s own investigatiors reporting no manipulation of its platform or policy violations by RT was found in the course of their investigation. It look then as if there is a stronger case for questioning the ingegrity of Schmidt, Google and the rest of the Alphabet group than that of RT.

Scholar Fired By Think Tank For Criticizing Google

Google censors internet content

Shortly after European monopolies regulators levied a record $2.7 billion fine against Google in June 2017, an influential Washington think tank The New America Foundation found out the hard way what can happen when a corporate bully is challenged.

The Foundation has been funded to the tune of $21 million by Google; its parent company Alphabet, and Alphabet’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt through his family’s foundation since the it was founded in 1999. That money propelled New America to the status of an influential player in policy debates on the American left and helped Google shape those debates, and thereby government policy.

The Think Tank’s debates and deliberations were supposed to be independent of Google and its financial support should not have bought any influence. That is not how Google plays the game however and when one of New America’s scholars posted a comment on the think tank’s website supporting the European Union’s action and questioning the ethics of Google’s business methods, Schmidt contacted the groups president, Anne-Marie Slaughter, according to the scholar.

Slaughter summoned the scholar, Barry Lynn, to her office and made Schmidt’s displeasure known. Lynn had been running a New America initiative called Open Markets, which is thought to have been instrumental in the growing criticism of the market dominance of telecom and tech giants assembled by Google under Schmidt’s leadership and now consolidated under a corporate umbrella known as Alphabet.

Lynn’s statement quickly disappeared from New America’s website, but was reposted without explanation a few hours later. Word of Mr. Schmidt’s anger at a member of an “independent” think – tank criticizing his corporate empire ripped through New America’s Washington offices where the main conference room is called the “Eric Schmidt Ideas Lab.” (Note to E Schmidt: We do not need to be reminded you are an egomaniac Eric.) Some people feared for their jobs, knowing the characteristic vengefulness of Google bosses might well lead to funding being cut, while others worried that the think tank could not be truly independent if it could be punished for offending its donors.

Those worries seemed to be substantiated a couple of days later, when Ms. Slaughter told Mr. Lynn that “the time has come for Open Markets and New America to part ways,” Lynn substantiated this claim by producing an email from Ms. Slaughter suggesting that the entire Open Markets team — nearly 10 full-time employees and unpaid fellows — would have their relationship with New America terminated.

While she asserted in the email, which was viewed and confirmed by The New York Times, that the decision was “in no way based on the content of your work,” Ms. Slaughter went on to contradict herself by accusing Mr. Lynn of “imperiling the institution as a whole.”

Mr. Lynn, in an interview said, “Google is very aggressive in throwing its money around Washington and Brussels, and then pulling the strings,” (an accusation borne out by some of our previous reports of Goggle’s influence in Washington.) “People are so afraid of Google now,” he added.

Google rejected any suggestion that it played a role in New America’s split with Open Markets (to paraphrase Mandy Rice Davis, a prostitute involved in a British political scandal in 1963,”Well they would, wouldn’t they?”). Riva Sciuto, a Google spokeswoman, pointed out that the company supports a wide range of think tanks and other nonprofits focused on information access and internet regulation. “We don’t agree with every group 100 percent of the time, and while we sometimes respectfully disagree, we respect each groups independence, personnel decisions and policy perspectives.”

New America’s executive vice president, Tyra Mariani, said it was “a mutual decision for Barry to spin out his Open Markets program,” and that the move was not in any way influenced by Google or Mr. Schmidt.

It appears that not only do Google abuse their dominant position in the internet search market, they abuse the truth as well.

I did not use Gmail a lot because although the mail got through, I started to be bombarded with targeted ads related to keywords used in my mail exchanges (they weren’t keywords as far as I was concerned, just conversation.

When Is Speech Or The Written Word Violence?

Political totalitarianism is coming to America, and via The United States Of America it will spead through the rest of the developed world if we do not resist. This week we have seen the latest social meltdown in a U.S. city people meeting to attend an officially authorised protest against the removal of a statue depicting the Confederate General Robert E. Lee were attacked by left wing rent-a-mob thugs who though not authorised to protest had decided to disrupt the rally.

Unfortunately rent-a-mob were not the only ones who learned of what was planned. Right wing thugs from the KKK and other extremist organisations decided they were going to make sure the rally in support of General Lee went ahead. And the rest is reported in the newspapers, though you may foind many contradictory accounts. just as truth is the first casualty of war, so objectivity is the first casualty of civil unrest, and if you have the impression that in the U.S.A. it is now impossible to be a neutral observer, you are not the only one.

The same is going on around Europe of course as those who style themselves ‘the left’,n an orgy of virtue signalling, increasingly adopt the position of reverse racism by demanding governments prioritise the interests of minorities over those of the majority and are imposing their warped view by describing any criticism as racism, fascism and ‘hate speech.’ Authoritarian attitudes are being ushered in not by paramilitary thugs in jackboots but by progressive activists and their allies in Silicon Valley and in the mainstream media. Increasingly free speech is being threatened by Google and Facebook algorithms that filter out from search results anything the ‘liberal’ elite do not approve of.

In a chilling oped, When Is Speech Violence published in The New York Times on July 14, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett, who teaches at Northeastern University, argued that the risibly misnamed crime of “hate speech” is the same thing as physical violence because it may possibly cause emotionally fragile individuals stress. Without defining what exactly constitutes hate speech, the professor argues that should be made illegal. This is of course making opinions illegal, for example if a white Christian or atheist is guilty of hate speech for demanting tighter controls on immigration, how can it be OK for an Islamic fundamentalist Imam call on Muslims to ‘rise up ans slaughter the infidel.

While politicians are mealy mouthed when confronted with this contradiction, internet technology companies are taking it upon themselves to stamp-out so-called “hate speech,” smothering free speech and the free exchange of ideas in the process.

A number of troubling actions by internet companies — Google (Don’t be evil – that’s our job,) being most prominent among them — are making it increasingly clear that some in Silicon Valley have proclaimed themselves defenders of the politically correct creed, of the new fascism and that those firms will silence any and all heretics who challenge the dogmas of these techno – inquisitors.

“Silicon Valley lives in a politically regressive, exclusive bubble. They are not aware of their own biases in how they talk, have a limited understanding of the philosophy behind free speech, and find it difficult empathizing with other points of view,” says Aaron Ginn, co-founder of the Lincoln Network, a think tank that seeks to promote libertarian ideas in the tech industry.

It is not just that Google is not promoting points of view which dissent from the techno – orthodoxy, the search giant, aleady in trouble with regulators around the wortld for abusing its near monopoly position, is also actively trying to suppress diversity of opinion. Google recently and controversially fired software engineer James Damore for authoring an internal memo questioning the company’s ideologically motivated but hypocritical diversity policies by highlighting the gap between policy and practice and citing sound scientific evidence suggesting that possible biological differences between men and women, not discrimination, could be a factor in the tech field’s high percentage of male professionals.

In the aftermath of Damore’s firing, former Google employees stepped forward and on condition of anonymity revealed the true extent of the company’s efforts to silence non – liberal voices among its staff. One anonymous employee identified as “Hal” told Breitbart News last week that some employees in Google’s ad sales department are “openly encouraging Adwords customers to pull their ads from Breitbart and Rebel Media.”

Another employee identified only as “Emmet” confirmed this with Breitbart News, and also revealed the existence of “efforts to demote anything non-PC, anti-socialist, and anti-Islamic from the company’s search results.”

Emmett says he personally witnessed efforts from leftists within Google to bias YouTube’s algorithms to push anti-PC content off the platform’s ‘related videos’ recommendations. Breitbart reported “The software could just ‘astroturf’ your Related Videos section [an effort to hurt overall ratings], and you would be none the wiser.”

“Sure, if you know what to look for, perhaps you’d notice,” he continued. “But the vast majority of the viewership would never ever know. That’s the whole point of such a disinformation program, right? If you can tell it’s disinformation, you would never, ever believe it,” the whistleblower added.

People familiar with the process have told reporters recently that YouTube, a Google spin – off, is also laboring to cleanse its platform of alternative voices that challenge the mainstream liberal narrative, removing videos crotical of Islamic extremism, but contunuing to show videos of stonings and beheadings in Muslim countres, content advocating sex with young children and anti – Christian violence, including video of white women being gang raped by Muslim men in northern Europe. The video-sharing site has in the past few months systematically demonetized videos of right-wing commenters and journalists, such as Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson and former Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern.

The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing ‘diversity’ to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.
