The Wall Street Journal reports on accusations by consumer privacy advocate Michael St. Patrick Baxter that an e-mail from Barnes & Noble to former Borders customers regarding their personal information "read more like a generous corporate gesture than a court-ordered disclosure."

"It was clear to the ombudsman that a robust and meaningful opt-out was critical to reaching the negotiated privacy-related terms of the sale," Baxter wrote, adding, "failure to provide such relevant and material information" may defeat the notice's purpose. "We believe the notice complies with all applicable requirements of the sale order," Barnes & Noble attorneys responded. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
