Blockbuster Sued For Participating In Facebook's Beacon Program

by Wendy Davis: A Texas resident has filed a federal lawsuit against Blockbuster for participating in Facebook's Beacon program, which tells members about their friends' e-commerce activity. In the lawsuit, quietly filed last week, Dallas County resident Cathryn Elaine Harris claims that Blockbuster violated the federal Videotape Privacy Protection Act by sharing information about her movie rentals and sales with Facebook without first obtaining her written consent.

Blockbuster is too bloody smug
What were you thinking Blockbuster? You get hammered in the 80s and you think everything will be hunky dory now?
Even though the 80s was a decade that everyone would like to erase, laws, statutes and precedent still apply. i.e. You are up shit creek with no paddle!
