U.S. District Judge Denies Facebook's Bid to Dismiss Lawsuit on Scanning of Messages

Facebook Inc. will have to face a class-action lawsuit alleging that it violated users privacy when it scanned the content of messages for advertising purposes, a federal judge in Oakland has ruled. U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton denied Facebook's bid to dismiss the lawsuit, filed by Facebook users Matthew Campbell and Michael Hurley in 2013. The suit alleges that until October 2012, when the social network says it stopped the practice, it scanned the content of private messages sent between users for links to websites, which were then used for delivering targeted advertising. The complaint alleges that this violated the federal and state privacy laws by 'reading its users' personal (and) private Facebook messages without their consent. Facebook had argued that the practice was covered by an exception under the federal Electronics Communications Privacy Act, and that it disclosed to users that it may use the information the company received for 'data analysis'. But Hamilton said the company had 'not offered a sufficient explanation of how the challenged practice falls within the ordinary court of business', and that the disclosure was not specific enough to establish that users expressly consented to the scanning of the content of their messages. Facebook's unwillingness to offer any details regarding its targeted advertising practice prevents the court from being able to determine whether the specific practice challenged in this case should be considered 'ordinary. Campbell, Hurley and an additional plaintiff, David Shadpour, seek class-action status on behalf of U.S. users who sent or received private messages that included links to websites.

CBP Investigates Facebook's New Privacy Policy

The Dutch privacy regulator CBP plans to investigate Facebook's new privacy policy. The regulator sent Facebook a letter asking it not to roll out the new terms until the investigation is completed. Facebook intends to implement the new policy, first announced in late November, worldwide from the start of 2015. According to the CBP, the policy gives Facebook the right to use photos and information from Facebook profiles for commercial purposes. Part of the policy also allows Facebook and its subsidiaries, including WhatsApp, Instagram and Oculus, to share user information with each other. Facebook also wants to be able to share users' location information with third parties. The Dutch regulator wants to know more about the consequences will be for users in the Netherlands. It also wants to know how Facebook plans to obtain users permission for using the personal data.
