Extension of Video Privacy Protection Act to Mobile Application

Filed an amicus brief (with other amici) with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Yershov v. Gannett.  The case involved the sharing of an anonymous device code with a data analytics provider used by USA Today.  The brief argued that the district court panel relied on a highly technical reading of the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1988 to expand the scope of “personally identifiable information” far beyond the bounds of accepted definitions.  The brief further argued that the panel’s interpretation of “subscriber” should be reconsidered because it misinterprets how mobile applications work.  [2016]
