Tomahawk, WI 12/03/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is just one of the major U.S companies that have been in news for all the wrong reasons; court cases filed against it by different groups. Lately, the company has spent enough time trying to prove to a U.S court, that it was not guilty of the crimes leveled against it as charged. What was the case all about? Apple Inc had to appear in front of a U.S court to prove whether it guilty of breaching client privacy as alleged by one of its customers or not. Fortunately, the U.S court deemed Apple Inc to be not guilty of these charges.

Is Apple Inc Innocent of these Allegations?

The question here is whether Apple Inc is truly innocent. Questions regarding tech giants such as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have been numerous this year, with allegations levied against them to the effect that they do not take privacy issues as seriously as they say through their marketing ventures. These allegations were filed against Apple way back in 2011, but the US courts have just determined the case, where they do not believe that the four plaintiffs have shown enough proof as to how they were harmed through the company’s actions. Is this failure on the part of plaintiffs?

When a case is determined to the defendant’s favor simply because plaintiffs failed to show enough evidence, it becomes harder to say with any certainty where the former is guilty or not. Apparently, this is what has happened with this determination and reprieve from the U.S courts to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). The plaintiffs grouse with Apple Inc stemmed from their belief that the company had designed its iOS platform in such a way that it could capture and transmit their private details to third parties, who would use them as they deemed fit, without their consent.

Apple’s Tribulations Part of a Growing Trend

This allegation is quite serious, and is similar to what companies such as Google face in Europe. Secondly, these plaintiffs had said that the company forced them to pay a lot of money for the iPhones, and other related devices that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) produces. Similarly, the plaintiffs complained to the U.S courts that the company denied them adequate storage space on all its iPhones and other related products. The U.S courts where this lawsuit was filed dismissed the case saying that plaintiffs had failed to prove that Apple Inc was indeed as guilty as charged.

There is no reason for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to start celebrating, yet. It has only got a reprieve but the way the tech firms are being taken to court across the globe for breach of privacy laws, it may jot be long until the next group of plaintiffs file similar lawsuits in the U.S courts yet again. Everywhere you look in the world, tech firms have to prove that they still value customer privacy and use all data and personal details given to them in the right way, without sharing the same with third parties who use them for monetary or other unclear gains.

As to how long the reprieve may last, that is difficult to tell, and it depends on how Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) decides to respond to these concerns proactively.
