Germany To Launch Legal Action Against Facebook Over Personal Data [google.com]
A German data protection official said Wednesday he launched legal proceedings against Facebook, which he accused of illegally accessing and saving personal data of people who don't use the social networking site.

Johannes Caspar said his Hamburg data protection office had initiated legal steps that could result in Facebook being fined tens of thousands of euros for saving private information of individuals who don't use the site and haven't granted it access to their details.

"We consider the saving of data from third parties, in this context, to be against data privacy laws," Caspar said in a statement.

Hopefully a move that will enable Facebook to take privacy more seriously.
