Raines Feldman privacy and data security lawyers discuss privacy issues implicated by mature content appearing on Snapchat without warning to minors.  Among other issues presented, the team discusses the applicability of the Communications Decency Act, both as a defense and a source of statutory damages for the plaintiffs.  Also, our lawyers analyze the enforceability of Snapchat’s arbitration clause and class action waiver.  Minors may not enter into binding contracts and the plaintiffs are a putative class of minors.  Finally, we discuss special pleading challenges presented by claims under California’s unfair business practices statute.   The statute, California Business and Professions Code section 17200, requires a pecuniary loss in order to advance claims.
