Over the past five months, Matthew Herrick says that 1,100 men
have showed up at his home and workplace expecting to have sex
with him. Herrick is suing Grindr, the popular dating app for
gay and bisexual men, because of it.

According to the complaint, Herrick, 32, is the victim of an
elaborate revenge scheme that's playing out on Grindr's
platform. An ex-boyfriend of Herrick's, who he says he met on
Grindr, has allegedly been creating fake accounts since October
2016. The accounts have Herrick's photos and personal details,
including some falsehoods like a claim that that he's HIV
positive.

The ex allegedly invites men to Herrick's apartment and the
restaurant where he works. Sometimes as many as 16 strangers
each day will show up looking for Herrick. In some instances,
they are told not to be dissuaded if Herrick is resistant at
first, "as part of an agreed upon rape fantasy or role play."

The case raises important questions in the social media age
about impersonation, stalking and harassment.

"What are Grindr's legal responsibilities," asks Aaron Mackey, a
Frank Stanton legal fellow at the Electronic Frontier
Foundation. "And what are its corporate and ethical
responsibilities to its users when it learns that its platform
is being abused in this way?"

Mackey said the answers have big implications.

As with many complaints against tech platforms, Section 230 of
the 1996 Communications Decency Act is at play in the Grindr
case. It's a unique legal protection that gives a broad layer of
immunity to online companies from being held liable for user-
generated content. Companies are supposed to act in good faith
to protect users.

In 2015, Grindr used the CDA to prevail in another case. It was
found not liable in a suit filed by a man who was arrested for a
sexual encounter with a minor he met on the app.

But in Herrick's case, attorneys Carrie Goldberg and Tor Ekeland
are relying on different laws. They're alleging product
liability, fraud and deceptive business practices, according to
an amended complaint filed on March 31.

"Much of our work is about finding the cracks and holes in
[Section] 230," said Goldberg, who is known for taking on sexual
privacy and revenge porn cases. "Companies don't deserve special
protections when their product is dangerous and [Section] 230
doesn't give them protection in such cases."

Originally filed in a New York state court in January, the case
was moved to federal court at Grindr's request in February.
According to the complaint, there have been more than 100
reports flagging the fake profiles in Grindr's app, resulting in
only generic replies from Grindr ("Thank you for your report.").

Grindr's terms of service state that impersonation accounts
aren't permitted, but it's unclear whether Grindr is capable of
cracking down on the accounts. A March email from Grindr's
counsel said the company cannot search for photographs,
according to the complaint. "Grindr claims it cannot control who
uses its product and that it lacks the basic software
capabilities used by its competitors and the social media
industry," it reads.

According to Matthew Zeiler, founder of image recognition
startup Clarifai, there are multiple ways for companies to
identify specific images on their platforms, and third party
providers can help implement these capabilities.

Processes known as image hashing or visual search can detect
near duplicate images from being posted on their platforms.

In a statement, Grindr said it's "committed to creating a safe
environment through a system of digital and human screening
tools, while also encouraging users to report suspicious and
threatening activities. While we are constantly improving upon
this process, it is important to remember that Grindr is an open
platform. Grindr cooperates with law enforcement on a regular
basis and does not condone abusive or violent behavior."

Grindr and its attorneys declined to comment further, citing the
active litigation.

Last week, Facebook (FB, Tech30) announced new measures to
combat the spread of "revenge porn" on its platform. It said it
would apply photo-matching to ensure intimate, non-consensual
images that have been reported aren't able to be re-uploaded
through Facebook's properties, including Messenger and Instagram.

The original complaint against Grindr said that hookup app
Scruff, which Herrick's ex was also allegedly using to create
fake profiles, was able to remove profiles and ban IP addresses.

CNNTech contacted the ex-boyfriend for comment. He denied
setting up fake accounts but declined to comment further.

Neville Johnson of Johnson & Johnson, LLP told CNNTech that
there needs to be a law that criminalizes impersonation and
protects victims online.

"Legislation has not kept up with the advancement of
technology," he said. "[Companies] can identify and stop this
kind of stuff -- they just don't want to take on the obligation."

Attorney David Gingras, who frequently defends companies from
lawsuits under Section 230, said these types of cases will
likely increase.

"There is currently a war between online speech providers and
people who are unhappy with that speech. It just seems like it
is getting busier. People do the worst things online and it
sucks -- but that's not the issue. The issue is who to blame for
it."

A lot of cases never make it to court, according to one source
who told CNNTech that companies end up striking deals to take
down posts, in order to avoid drawn-out legal fees.

Goldberg doesn't plan to back down; she's already planning her
next move: pushing Google and Apple to remove Grindr from their
app store.

"If a court won't hold Grindr responsible for having a dangerous
product ... we'd need to examine the liability of the 'sellers'
that are making available a dangerous product," she told
CNNTech. "This lawsuit puts them on notice that a dangerous
product, one purportedly not controllable by its manufacturer,
is being downloaded from their marketplaces."

Goldberg likened it to a car battery exploding in a person's
face.

"If the manufacturer and seller both know the battery could
explode, there's a duty to inform users of the risk," she said.

"Not to mention a duty to evaluate whether the product is so
dangerous it should be removed from the market altogether."

Agreed. Rightist Christian Turd Stabbers are everywhere, and
even pretending to be married. Why did these rightists choose
to be homosexuals and why do they refuse to take the cure and
pray the gay away? If all the homos were imprisoned and
executed as the Bible dictates, nobody would be left to support
Trump! It's no surprise that when Sessions was asked
yesterday, he said "no comment".



Most right wing religious fanatics in the USA have also chosen
to be homosexuals but try to conceal it by paying women to be
their wives.

Dirty rightist faggots don't have the right to keep and bear

We should just pass a law making homosexual sex acts a death
penalty crime. I have recieved yet another 30 day suspension
from Facebook for posting this oin their site. Yet Tom
Strenja the criminal who shoots women can threaten me and my
family with death on FB and Mark Zuckerburg the fag hag in
chief does nothing.
I've felt that way about evangelicals once or twice.
I feel that way about Democrats and their homosexual pervert
butt buddies every day.

Over the past five months, Matthew Herrick says that 1,100 men
have showed up at his home and workplace expecting to have sex
with him. Herrick is suing Grindr, the popular dating app for
gay and bisexual men, because of it.
According to the complaint, Herrick, 32, is the victim of an
elaborate revenge scheme that's playing out on Grindr's
platform. An ex-boyfriend of Herrick's, who he says he met on
Grindr, has allegedly been creating fake accounts since October
2016. The accounts have Herrick's photos and personal details,
including some falsehoods like a claim that that he's HIV
positive.
The ex allegedly invites men to Herrick's apartment and the
restaurant where he works. Sometimes as many as 16 strangers
each day will show up looking for Herrick. In some instances,
they are told not to be dissuaded if Herrick is resistant at
first, "as part of an agreed upon rape fantasy or role play."
The case raises important questions in the social media age
about impersonation, stalking and harassment.
"What are Grindr's legal responsibilities," asks Aaron Mackey, a
Frank Stanton legal fellow at the Electronic Frontier
Foundation. "And what are its corporate and ethical
responsibilities to its users when it learns that its platform
is being abused in this way?"
Mackey said the answers have big implications.
As with many complaints against tech platforms, Section 230 of
the 1996 Communications Decency Act is at play in the Grindr
case. It's a unique legal protection that gives a broad layer of
immunity to online companies from being held liable for user-
generated content. Companies are supposed to act in good faith
to protect users.
In 2015, Grindr used the CDA to prevail in another case. It was
found not liable in a suit filed by a man who was arrested for a
sexual encounter with a minor he met on the app.
But in Herrick's case, attorneys Carrie Goldberg and Tor Ekeland
are relying on different laws. They're alleging product
liability, fraud and deceptive business practices, according to
an amended complaint filed on March 31.
"Much of our work is about finding the cracks and holes in
[Section] 230," said Goldberg, who is known for taking on sexual
privacy and revenge porn cases. "Companies don't deserve special
protections when their product is dangerous and [Section] 230
doesn't give them protection in such cases."
Originally filed in a New York state court in January, the case
was moved to federal court at Grindr's request in February.
According to the complaint, there have been more than 100
reports flagging the fake profiles in Grindr's app, resulting in
only generic replies from Grindr ("Thank you for your report.").
Grindr's terms of service state that impersonation accounts
aren't permitted, but it's unclear whether Grindr is capable of
cracking down on the accounts. A March email from Grindr's
counsel said the company cannot search for photographs,
according to the complaint. "Grindr claims it cannot control who
uses its product and that it lacks the basic software
capabilities used by its competitors and the social media
industry," it reads.
According to Matthew Zeiler, founder of image recognition
startup Clarifai, there are multiple ways for companies to
identify specific images on their platforms, and third party
providers can help implement these capabilities.
Processes known as image hashing or visual search can detect
near duplicate images from being posted on their platforms.
In a statement, Grindr said it's "committed to creating a safe
environment through a system of digital and human screening
tools, while also encouraging users to report suspicious and
threatening activities. While we are constantly improving upon
this process, it is important to remember that Grindr is an open
platform. Grindr cooperates with law enforcement on a regular
basis and does not condone abusive or violent behavior."
Grindr and its attorneys declined to comment further, citing the
active litigation.
Last week, Facebook (FB, Tech30) announced new measures to
combat the spread of "revenge porn" on its platform. It said it
would apply photo-matching to ensure intimate, non-consensual
images that have been reported aren't able to be re-uploaded
through Facebook's properties, including Messenger and Instagram.
The original complaint against Grindr said that hookup app
Scruff, which Herrick's ex was also allegedly using to create
fake profiles, was able to remove profiles and ban IP addresses.
CNNTech contacted the ex-boyfriend for comment. He denied
setting up fake accounts but declined to comment further.
Neville Johnson of Johnson & Johnson, LLP told CNNTech that
there needs to be a law that criminalizes impersonation and
protects victims online.
"Legislation has not kept up with the advancement of
technology," he said. "[Companies] can identify and stop this
kind of stuff -- they just don't want to take on the obligation."
Attorney David Gingras, who frequently defends companies from
lawsuits under Section 230, said these types of cases will
likely increase.
"There is currently a war between online speech providers and
people who are unhappy with that speech. It just seems like it
is getting busier. People do the worst things online and it
sucks -- but that's not the issue. The issue is who to blame for
it."
A lot of cases never make it to court, according to one source
who told CNNTech that companies end up striking deals to take
down posts, in order to avoid drawn-out legal fees.
Goldberg doesn't plan to back down; she's already planning her
next move: pushing Google and Apple to remove Grindr from their
app store.
"If a court won't hold Grindr responsible for having a dangerous
product ... we'd need to examine the liability of the 'sellers'
that are making available a dangerous product," she told
CNNTech. "This lawsuit puts them on notice that a dangerous
product, one purportedly not controllable by its manufacturer,
is being downloaded from their marketplaces."
Goldberg likened it to a car battery exploding in a person's
face.
"If the manufacturer and seller both know the battery could
explode, there's a duty to inform users of the risk," she said.
"Not to mention a duty to evaluate whether the product is so
dangerous it should be removed from the market altogether."
