“IMDb has sued the state of California to invalidate recently enacted legislation requiring subscription entertainment database sites to remove an actor’s age, if requested by the actor,” reports Dave McNary in Variety.
The story adds, “‘IMDb shares the worthy goal of preventing age discrimination,’ attorney John C. Hueston said in the complaint. ‘But AB 1687 is an unconstitutional law that does not advance, much less achieve, that goal. To the contrary, rather than passing laws designed to address the root problem of age discrimination, the State of California has chosen to chill free speech and undermine public access to factual information.’”
