Austrian Student Launches Class Action Lawsuit Against Facebook


An Austrian law student sues Facebook for alleged violations of European privacy laws as the social network shares private user data. He is also asking adult non-commercial Facebook users outside of Canada and the U.S. to join his cause.

"We want to show to the U.S. industry that they have to respect [European] fundamental rights if they want to do business in Europe. We love the technology, but we want to be able to use things without permanent worry for our privacy. Right now you have two options: live like in the stone age, or take action. We decided for the second," he says.

The suit is being filed against Facebook subsidiary Facebook Ireland in a commercial court in Vienna, Austria. He set claims for damages at a low per-person price €500 ($670).
