Apple is facing yet another lawsuit, this time from three residents in Massachusetts who claim Apple collected their zip codes and profited from selling them to third parties. The plaintiffs — Adam Christensen, Jeffrey Scolnick, and William Farrell — claim they had to provide their zip codes when making credit card purchases at an Apple retail store, which would violate the Massachusetts Unfair Trade Practices Act. This law states that retailers cannot force customers to provide more information than is necessary for credit card companies to verify the purchase.
