He won't win. Any and all digital data you create is permanent and viewable, with the right clearance, even if you have no idea it exists. In fact there has been a push to make sure NOBODY can fall off the grid so to speak, even if you don't use a computer. If I had the right clearance I could see what you looked like at the ATM machine yesterday(built in camera), know where you parked your vehicle this evening (OnStar, satellite tracking, etc), and even know exactly where you are right now by finding the rfid chip on your credit or bank card(or the one in your underwear, you used a bank card or rewards card when buying them). I have NO doubt that there are even more devious ways, used for the protection of everyone, that would also violate your tolerance levels.
This lawsuit is about Facebook but a tap on the shoulder will/needs to occur to protect the interests mentioned above. Regular people are a flock that needs maintaining afterall, right?
P.S. stop buying the soup mix from aisle 3 at the widget shop, the mix from aisle 1 at the healthy widgets shop is much better for you, your rewards club food purchase history says you're 91% likely to be fat.
