So what you are saying is, that companies shouldn't have to respect laws and should get away with breaking laws, instead users should protect themselves with countermeasures like proxies that slow down their internet connection which they wouldn't need if companies would abide to privacy laws? And everyone who expects that laws are followed and enforced is a fool?
The only bad thing about this lawsuit is that it comes a few years late. And that it is only about money. People like Zuckerberg belong to jail and not on Wallstreet in my opinion.
