A French citizen has successfully sued Facebook for censorship, making the argument against some of Facebooks terms of service become more supported.
Facebook for the longest time was able to argue against outsiders suing their company because they were based in California. Of course, a French user cannot easily sue a multi-billion dollar company in California, so it’s easy for Facebook to do whatever it really wants.
Still, the French court ruled against Facebook pointing to this discrepancy as unfair since 22 million Facebook users are French. That’s an unjustified precedent considering the people it affects.
Also, consider that users are removed because of the terms of service. If one is subjected to the terms of service outside of California, aren’t they also able to sue?
