The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reaffirmed data analytics company hiQ Labs Inc.’s ability to scrape publicly available data from LinkedIn’s platform despite the social media company’s claim that the data collected violated federal hacking laws. 

The appeals court previously upheld hiQ Labs’ preliminary injunction prohibiting LinkedIn from denying the data company access to publicly available profiles in September 2019. The U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari, vacated the panel’s judgment and remanded for consideration in light of its decision in Van Buren v. U.S. regarding the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
