The class-action lawsuit was filed in the US District Court in San Francisco by Justin Baker-Rhett.
The lawsuit claims that users were duped into subscribing for Tidal on the premise that TLOP would be a Tidal Exclusive.
Tidal gained a large number of subscribers when TLOP was first released meaning West and the streaming company ‘tricked millions of people into subscribing to their services’.
“Mr. West’s promise of exclusivity also had a grave impact on consumer privacy,” the lawsuit states, noting that users’ credit card information, music preferences and other personal information have been collected.
The lawsuit contends the value of new subscribers and their personal information could be as much as $84 million for Tidal. foxnews.com
Ideally, Baker-Rhett is asking the judge to get Tidal to delete any credit card or personal information collected from users who signed up for Kanye West’s album.
TLOP has been released and ‘unreleased’, finished and unfinished.
This is just part of its journey.
As for Tidal, this is yet another class-action lawsuit.
