Quote from article:
"In the wake of the disclosure of the National Security Agency’s mass digital surveillance program, a group of Austrian students have filed a series of formal complaints with a number of European data protection agencies. The case could become the first legal proceeding challenging disclosure of non-American data to the American government on the basis of alleged violations of European Union data protection law."

I'm very impressed by the students in this article. This is a far better way to challenge the power and arrogance of the United States and finally it's good to read that they are challenging Facebook.

You've heard that EU officials have already threatened to stop the negotiations about the TTIP over this scandal.

"Austrian students have filed a series of formal complaints with a number of European data protection agencies." Good for them. We must stop the bleeding before we can operate. These students are doing their best to do that. It is up to all f us to keep our government and social media like Facebook from denying our right to privacy. Thank You JL for posting -Noted.
