The Electronic Frontier Foundation filed suit
By Colin Leche
AT&T was sued by the Electronic Frontier Foundation today for selling customer location data to third parties, after controversy erupted earlier this year over wireless carriers' data practices.
The digital activism group filed the proposed class action suit today on behalf of AT&T customers in California. The suit also named two other companies, LocationSmart and Zumigo, which have acted as data aggregators, collecting location information and selling it to third parties for commercial use.
