US Court Admits Customers’ Lawsuit against LinkedIn Corp
Jun 16 14
The San Jose federal court in California said that LinkedIn needs to face a lawsuit for using the contact list of its users to increase its user base and business. In the Perkins et al v. LinkedIn Corp. law suit, filed in September 2013, the plaintiffs are accusing LinkedIn of violating several state and federal laws by harvesting email addresses from the contact lists of email accounts and by sending repeated invitations to join LinkedIn to the harvested email addresses. In a 39-page decision released last week, judge Lucy Koh observed that the practice could injure users' reputations by allowing contacts to think that the users are the types of people who spam their contacts or are unable to take the hint that their contacts do not want to join their LinkedIn network. Koh admitted plaintiffs' claims that LinkedIn violated their right of publicity but dismissed other claim that the company violated a federal wiretap law.
