EDIT - In their filing, Clearview states that they’ve changed their business practices and have cancelled all accounts of non-government customers. They promise to inform the court if that changes during the lawsuit. But not after. So… They promise that they’ve changed - to make the lawsuit go away - but that once the lawsuit is gone they are free to go back to doing what they’ve always done. That is an insane argument to make in a court filing.

Another hilarious thing is that they also claim to have blocked customers from searching photos that have GPS metadata identifying them as from Illinois. Blocked from searching, not deleting. Yeah, that’s admitting to a continued violation of the law. Read the law again.

They say they’ve created an opt-out program for Illinois residents, when the law actually says that it must be opt-in. WTF?

I’d really like to read the response to this filing!
