A Canadian law firm, representing a plaintiff who claims Sony has breached her privacy, is suing the company and all its subsidiaries for $1 billion Canadian dollars.
21 year old Natasha Maksimovic has enlisted the services of Toronto law firm McPhadden Samac Tuovi LLP to claim damages in excess of $1 billion (Canadian) against all Sony subsidiaries, including Sony Japan, Sony USA and Sony Canada. Maksimovic claims that Sony has breached her privacy and must "pay the costs of credit monitoring services and fraud insurance coverage for two years."
"If you can't trust a huge multi-national corporation like Sony to protect your private information, who can you trust?" Maksimovic said, proving she's never played Final Fantasy VII or indeed dealt with a huge multi-national corporation before. "It seems Sony focuses more on protecting its games than its PlayStation users."
Sony has 20 days to file a statement of defense.
