Facebook files charges to digital suicide service

xonen (774419) writes "Last week, a dutch artist collective opened a new webservice, the 'suicide machine'. Their service automates the deletion of your accounts, and account related information like friends, for a variety of services including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Their aim is to 'help you get rid of those energy consuming social networks'.

Facebook now filed charges against the website, claiming they violate their terms and conditions, and are illegaly requesting account information from their users, and applying automated access to the facebook website.

In a reaction, Moddr, the owner of the website, responded: "We are not violating their terms, if any, the users are because they are the ones providing us their account information". Also, they plan not to comply to facebook's C&D letter "Facebook is the only one that has contacted us. So far we didn't hear nothing from twitter and linkedin". Instead of complying, they plan to have a workaround ready as soon as monday to 'circumvent the blockade that facebook put on our servers". They seek aid of a lawyer nevertheless.

Excuses for my bad english."
