A very interesting US federal judge ruling against Microsoft’s Linkedin.  It will now allow companies to extract public data from Linkedin profiles.  This case is considered to have implications to other social properties where data and information is shared.  Companies who rely on publicly available data are very encouraged by this ruling.  I am sure this is the beginning of a long and highly-debated case.
