I really did not know the thing was recording me 24/7. My only concern with joining the class is that I would not want to be banned from Amazon, as I do use their other services, evil as they are. May I have your opinion?
I always sign up for class action suits, which usually provide me, down the line, with some sort of compensation - I think the most I have ever gotten was something like $100, and the amounts are usually on the order of about $15. I recommend you sign up.
You will never be able to sue Amazon individually, and this lawsuit will almost certainly produce some recovery by way of settlement. I wouldn’t bank on “thousands in damages,” though. If something really bad had happened to you because of the surreptitious recording done - for instance, if you could prove you had lost a job, etc., because of a disclosure of the recording - then you might well be able to collect thousands - and you would have to sue individually. As someone whose privacy has been invaded, but who doesn't have any proof of any particular bad impact on you, you probably can’t demonstrate much in terms of specific damages, just the general violation of your privacy.
Someone may have listened to you having sex, or doing something else that you wouldn’t generally want to be overheard, but unless that recording has then been used to shame you, or to cause you some other damage, you’d have a hard time proving your right to lots of money.I would NOT worry that Amazon won’t take your online book orders - or otherwise let you use their services. Sign up, and see what your privacy is really worth!
Like I say, I’d bet from $5 to $15!!
