Bose, the audio equipment company, is in some major hot water for their wireless headphones and speakers. And that includes a class action lawsuit that accused the company of designing a smartphone app to collect private data from users phones, which includes the names of songs and audio files they're playing. Kyle Zak, who filed the lawsuit in Illinois court, is also stating that the audio giants send the information to third-party companies.
That's pretty serious, considering that if true, they're violating the Wiretap Act, the Illinois Eavesdropping Statute and a handful of other laws that are connected to things like invasion of privacy, deceptive business practices and fraud.
Zak is looking to be awarded damages and is seeking an injunctive relief to stop the company from collecting and distributing any more data.
