Introduction:
Google Buzz (http://buzz.google.com), a service launched within Gmail in
February of this year.Recently google was sued by a group of Buzz users who
were concerned about privacy.Below is the information provided by the google

to its users about Goo



Main Content:
Google rarely contacts Gmail users via email, but we are making an
exception to let you know that we've reached a settlement in a lawsuit
regarding Google Buzz (http://buzz.google.com), a service we launched
within Gmail in February of this year.

Shortly after its launch, we heard from a number of people who were
concerned about privacy. In addition, we were sued by a group of Buzz
users and recently reached a settlement in this case.


The settlement acknowledges that we quickly changed the service to address
users' concerns. In addition, Google has committed $8.5 million to an
independent fund, most of which will support organizations promoting
privacy education and policy on the web. We will also do more to educate
people about privacy controls specific to Buzz. The more people know
about privacy online, the better their online experience will be.


Just to be clear, this is not a settlement in which people who use Gmail
can file to receive compensation. Everyone in the U.S. who uses Gmail is
included in the settlement, unless you personally decide to opt out
before December 6, 2010. The Court will consider final approval of the
agreement on January 31, 2011. This email is a summary of the settlement,
and more detailed information and instructions approved by the court,
including instructions about how to opt out, object, or comment, are
available at http://www.BuzzClassAction.com.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
This mandatory announcement was sent to all Gmail users in the United
States as part of a legal settlement and was authorized by the United
States District Court for the Northern District of California.

Conclusion:
By the way apart from these petty issues google buzz is a great service.
