Earlier this month, LinkedIn Corp. was hit with a class action lawsuit alleging it violated California law by misappropriating members’ names and likenesses in order to advertise its contact uploader service for financial gain.
The LinkedIn class action lawsuit alleges violations of the California Common Law Right of Publicity and California Unfair Competition Law.
The LinkedIn Class Action Lawsuit is Lea v. LinkedIn Corp., Case No. 5:15-cv-00236, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
