BT advert trials were 'illegal' (phorm)

Postby loftie » Wed Apr 02, 2008 3:09 pm

Trials of an online ad system carried out by BT involving more than 30,000 of its customers were potentially illegal, says a leading digital rights lawyer.

BT has said it trialled a prototype of Phorm, which matches adverts to users' web habits, in 2006 and 2007.


Glad i'm not with BT, I can't believe they didn't inform anyone about the test, makes me sad... :cry:
