Well, good luck with that

Class action privacy lawsuit filed against Facebook in Austria.
“Basically we are asking Facebook to stop mass surveillance, to (have) a proper privacy policy that people can understand, but also to stop collecting data of people that are not even Facebook users,” said Schrems.
Beautifully put.  Unfortunately that’s asking Facebook and pretty much the entire internet to abandon its business plan.   Fuck it: bring it on.
Schrems is also fighting to stop the US security services from gaining access to his personal data held by Facebook and other US technology firms. His case, which has been crowdfunded, is currently being heard in the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, Europe’s highest court.
I find myself liking Schrems.
Facebook declined to comment.
