Google Inc. and Viacom, Inc. Win Dismissal of Children’S Web Privacy Lawsuit

Google Inc. and Viacom Inc. won the dismissal of a nationwide privacy lawsuit accusing them of illegally tracking the Internet activity of boys and girls who visited Nickelodeon's website, in order to send targeted advertising. The lawsuit claimed that Viacom secretly kept track of children under age 13 who streamed videos and played video games on its website, and shared what it learned with Google. It said both companies then without permission put text files known "cookies" into the children's computers, letting them gather additional information that advertisers could use. The lawsuit was brought on behalf of young children who registered to use But in a Jan. 20 decision, U.S. District Judge Stanley Chesler in Newark, N.J., found no showing that Google and Viacom could identify which children streamed specific videos or played specific video games, as opposed to identifying children generally. The plaintiffs had accused Viacom of violating the federal Video Privacy Protection Act, and both companies of violating a New Jersey anti-computer hacking law. Chesler dismissed other claims last July, and said the plaintiffs cannot amend their lawsuit again. The litigation against Google and New York-based Viacom began in 2012.
