"Point is - it's obvious where the power lies here. Any fines of any transnational never amount to even a day's cleared profits, as the Reg writers themselves often point out. Which shows who is in actual control, and the rest is theater."

I would think that a fine for example of 30% of annual turnover would make even Facebook sit up and take notice. The levels of fines especially from the European Court systems as well as the levels of potential enforcement are not something that any transnational will take lightly.
