Law student accuses Facebook of massive data breaches
Some law student from Vienna, who clearly doesn't have much on at the minute, is pointing a finger at Facebook and saying that they're committing multiple breaches of European data protection laws.
Max Schrems found out some pretty lousy information from evidence that Facebook themselves provided him with.
Schrems exercised his (and anyone's) legal right to obtain a CD of all information that Facebook held regarding him. Looking around, he found a load of information about him that wasn't included on the disc.
As such, he's now filed 22 complaints to the Data Protection Commissioner in Ireland, where Facebook's European operation is based. He also created a website Europe vs Facebook, which urges other bored EU citizens to chase after Facebook with pitchforks.
There's a video interview with Schrens here, explaining it all.
