Safari Claimants’ Day In UK High Court

IMG_0298

Google is appearing before the English High Court this morning to argue that a privacy action brought by British claimants should not be heard in the UK.   It follows an alleged breach of the privacy of people using Apple’s  Safari internet browser who had clicked to “private browse”.  The matter has already been dealt with in the United States in relation to American victims.  British Safari users say that Google has had no sanction in the UK and so they have had no option but to sue the internet giant.

The High Court will decide whether the case should go ahead.  The claimants say that Google is in the UK, it serves the UK, it profits from the UK.  It cannot ignore the law here.
