With one in ten addicted to their mobile phone, is it the tobacco industry all over again?

The tobacco conspiracy

Judge Kessler asked that the statistics not obscure what the case was really about.

"It is about an industry, and in particular these defendants, that survives and profits from selling a highly addictive product which causes diseases that lead to a staggering number of deaths per year, an immeasurable amount of human suffering and economic loss, and a profound burden on our national health-care system. Defendants have known many of these facts for at least 50 years or more.

"Despite that knowledge, they have consistently, repeatedly, and with enormous skill and sophistication, denied these facts to the public, to the Government and to the public health community. Moreover, in order to sustain the economic viability of their companies, (the) defendants have denied that they marketed and advertised their products to children under the age of 18 and to young people between the ages of 18 and 21 in order to ensure an adequate supply of replacement smokers, as older ones fall by the wayside through death, illness or cessation of smoking.

"In short, (the) defendants have marketed and sold their lethal product with zeal, with deception, with a single-minded focus on their financial success and without regard for the human tragedy or social costs that success exacted."
