"This judgment sends a clear message that businesses must comply with this important law. It helps protect us all.”
No it doesn't, the message it sends, is that any corporation that has a handy cash pile can buy their way out breaking laws any time they like.
Half a million is tea money for Amazon, if that.
The law is protecting nobody and is failing to protect the people who ought to benefit from it and the authorities are guilty of neglect of duty.
