MUMBAI: Cecilia Barnes spells Rs $ 3 million for search engine giant Yahoo Inc, and how? Oregon-based Barnes has sued the company for that much amount for failing to remove nude photos of her from the profile of her former boyfriend.
Barnes, 48, has claimed in the lawsuit that her former boyfriend began posting naked pictures of her in Yahoo! profiles. Also included were her personal mail ids along with phone numbers. The photos were taken and posted on the net without her consent
“Due to these profiles and online chats, unknown men would arrive without warning at plaintiff’s work expecting to engage in sexual relations with her,” the lawsuit claims.
