There’s a story in the Cranberry Eagle by Jared Stonesifer about a man who has sued LinkedIn because his information was displayed in a profile that he hadn’t created, and LinkedIn wouldn’t tell him who created it – even though they removed the page:
The lawsuit, which was filed Thursday, says that Senft keeps his personal contact information private.
The Point Daily also covers the lawsuit.
So what do you think will happen here? Will LinkedIn try to settle the suit by giving the plaintiff the information he requested, or will it hold out for a court order? And what should be the consequences of this breach? Can Senft show harm? Or will this breach, too, gets dismissed?
I can’t wait to see what Venkat Balasubramani thinks of its chances. 🙂
Typo on Venkat’s name fixed.
