Blockshopper.com/Landon company / Invasion of Privacy
This is a new complaint against Blockshopper.com. This website, which supposedly provides "content, " is actually scraping people's profiles, including PRIVATE, profiles. I write this as one of the people that they posted an article about. My issue and complaint is that the career info that was written in the article is clearly copied and pasted from my PRIVATE linked in profile. Obviously if this info was public (like the purchase price of house, seller, etc...) I would not have any issues.
I contacted scarlett (for complaints) and drew (editor) asking them to either provide me with their public sources of information or to remove the article immediately. I also stated that the information in the article was inaccurate. The only response I got is that I can send them updated and corrected info and that they would NOT remove it.
What set me off on this issue is that if you type my name into google, the 1st 4 pages of search results talk about my career as a film producer. I recently executive produced a film titled "The Beatnicks" (www.thebeatnicks.com)starring Norman Reedus (from "The Boondock Saints") and co starring Eric Roberts. My guess is that if they had actually done any research on me, that is the info that would have been published, as opposed to copying and pasting my PRIVATE profile. I know for a fact that this was the case because I have never had a public profile on linkedin.
Has anyone else had this issue? I am seeking council in the next week or so and have verified Terms of Service with linked in to make sure I am not misreading the situation. I would be thrilled to bring in anyone else and get into class action situation.
please contact me at [protected]@aslaninfotech.com if you have had this issue with Blockshopper.com as they can not and will not get away with it.
