Germany Takes Legal Steps Against Facebook

pinky99 Germany (138 comments)

I find it funny: This is the a case of the data protection office of Hamburg, a city/federal state in Germany, not Germany. If a city in the US is preparing a case, would the title also be "US takes legal steps"?

pinky99 Normal procedure (315 comments)

As an European citizen I just want to point out to all non-EU friends of /. that this is just a completely normal and standard procedure - it doesn't depend on which law or which country, but if a European law directive is not formed into national laws by the governments/parliaments, the EU automatically sues the non-conforming member states. Happens all the times, on all issues, punishment is normally the fine for each more day passing by.

Plus, it is undetectable, if it was hacked or not.

This petition aims to change Sony's mind."
