"it will honour for at least five years" ?!?
Whaddya mean, only five ? And after that it will resume its cheating, sneaky ways ?
Who do they think they are ? Microsoft ?
Man do i appreciate AdBlocker !
@"At least they did some thing about it"
Yes but they did something *years later* ... which means the greedy two faced bastards running the company have earned money for years, ready to pay off any fine they get. For example:
@"are liable to lead to fines of $16,000 per incident"
So what's the betting that only means they get fined just £16k, instead of £16k * number of users fucked over by them.
I've seen enough government actions over the years to see that government departments usual idea of fining companies, simply means a paltry fine amount that the company can easily pay and then the company carries on undeterred. (The fines are just to placate us into thinking the government are trying to stop these greedy bastards who run these companies. But the government isn't really stopping these bastards who run these companies because after all, some of these bastards who run the companies are friends with the government!).
