Screen Actors Guild Backs Privacy Case
PERSONAL PRIVACY—U.S.November 18, 2013
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has announced it is supporting an actress’s privacy suit against IMDb.com, MediaPost reports. The SAG said the company “committed an unconscionable breach of trust” when it accessed actress Junie Hoang’s credit card information to determine and publicize her real birthdate. “Individual IMDb profiles contain information that most people would consider private and that can be used for improper purposes,” the SAG wrote in an amicus brief to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
