Privacy? What nonsense.

Firstly, Facebook only respects its users privacy because it wants the sole rights to sell their information.

Secondly, the EU Data Protection law only respects the privacy of the living, so Facebook can't fall back on that one.

And thirdly: it was a child! Is it not obvious this is a wrong decision on both moral and legal grounds.

It just go to show that most judges are indeed idiots.
