Hulu Loses Motion To Dismiss in Lawsuit Against re Alleged Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) Violations

A  US, Magistrate Judge  has turned down a request by ad-supported video content platform Hulu to dismiss a lawsuit which accused it of illegally sharing users’ viewing history with Facebook and comScore.

Hulu has argued that viewers need to demonstrate ‘actual injury’ in order to receive damages under the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA). However, the Court ruled that this act requires only injury in the form of a wrongful disclosure before damages might be available.
