Facebook Settles Class Action for $10 Million


This is a settlement for the Internet/Technology lawsuit.

San Francisco, CA: Facebook has agreed to pay $10 million to charities as settlement of a class-action lawsuit filed in December over the use of members' likenesses in sponsored stories.

The lawsuit alleged that Facebook had violated California' Right of Publicity Statute, which prohibits the non-consensual use of another person' name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness for advertising purposes. The lawsuit stemmed from Facebook users' "likes"being used as product or brand endorsements, a page or product, together with the use of the person' name and photo.
