The Privacy Advisor Podcast | The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Edelson on settling with Facebook for $550M Related reading: The Privacy Advisor Podcast: A debrief on the Washington Privacy Act



It would have been hard to miss the big news this week, news privacy advocates are heralding as a major win: Facebook has agreed to settle for $550 million in a class-action lawsuit alleging the company violated Illinois' Biometric Information Privacy Act when it used facial-recognition software to suggest users "tag" faces in photos they uploaded to the site. In this episode of the podcast, Jay Edelson, one of the plaintiff's attorneys who argued the case, talks with host Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about why he's "enormously proud" of what is "easily the largest cash privacy settlement in our nation's history" and why this is a good settlement for members of the class.
