Cookies = Stalking?

Cookies = Stalking? Some wacko attorney is suing Yahoo on behalf of a company that wanted to buy Yahoo users' data. Yahoo stopped giving them data, so they're suing for 4 billion dollars, and part of that is a goofy notion that a website delivering cookies to your computer is "trespassing" on your hard drive and "like a big electronic eyeball in your house." They're trying to use an anti-stalking law in their favor against Yahoo's cookie setting of visitors. Great, as if the recent double-click thing hasn't scared people enough about cookies...
