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.

I have had FB for many many many years. I have seen suspicious activity. I was getting Feedback from an unknown person, stating that I had been sending them unsolicited messages, which is not true. My FB was banded for about a month, until I wrote them with regards to my account. My name was even used. Do you think I can be included in this class action settlement? I can't believe these underlying fraud is happening. I thought FB was trust worthy.
