Why you probably shouldn’t care if Bose is spying on you
Bose, one of the biggest names in personal audio, is under fire for allegedly cataloging the listening habits and song choices of its users and then compiling that data and offering it for sale to third-party companies, all without the permission or notification of customers. The claims originate from a lawsuit just filed in Chicago, and the complaint has some far-reaching privacy implications that, if the allegations prove to be accurate, could mean the company has been actively breaking several laws, including the federal WireTap Act. However, the court filing makes a number of huge stretches to make the potential privacy impact seem much more damning than it has proven to be thus far.
