Microsoft ordered to let third parties scrape LinkedIn data

Microsoft – the parent company of LinkedIn – has been told by a USA court that its users are legally allowed to have their data scraped by third party companies, despite the company claiming it violates privacy laws.

A report by Wall Street Journal claims that the ruling made by the judge is part of a lawsuit brought out by hiQ Labs. This is a young startup which works to analyse the data of LinkedIn to estimate whether their workers are likely to leave jobs or not. hiQ was previously ordered by Linkedln to stop with the scraping of its data, so the startup hit back with a raging lawsuit.
