Class action suit against Clearview AI cites Illinois law that cost Facebook $550M

Clearview made waves previously this year with a business design seemingly asserted on wholesale abuse of public-facing data on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and so on. The suit (submitted in New York, where Clearview is based) is at its really earliest stages and has actually only been appointed a judge, and summonses sent out to Clearview and CDW Government, the intermediary for offering its services to law enforcement. Even if Clearview were to right away erase all the info it has on people of Illinois, it would still likely be liable for its previous acts.
