It was recently reported that the US Supreme Court would be allowing LinkedIn to stop rival recruitment data companies from taking personal data from its platform.
Indeed, LinkedIn has previously pointed out that rival companies have been stealing customer data from their public-facing user profiles. It then tried to use the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act to prevent it from happening again but without much success.
However, the Court now declared that it would be reconsidering the case as it was discovered that a person cannot violate the specific law if they are using a computer they have permission to access. The result of the case might limit the use of data scraping on public-facing websites in the US.
