California Supreme Court makes it easier for Apple, online businesses to collect personal data
Online merchants such as Apple (AAPL) and Ticketmaster can require consumers to furnish personal information to make credit-card purchases, a divided California Supreme Court ruled Monday, delivering a blow to consumer advocates worried about privacy in cyberspace.
In the 4-3 decision, the Supreme Court found that a two-decade-old California consumer protection law does not apply to the multibillion-dollar online commerce world, siding with Apple and other e-tailers in a legal battle over how much personal information buyers must give up in credit card transactions.
Apple argued that the law -- the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act -- applies only to brick-and-mortar businesses, and the Supreme Court agreed.
