German legal ruling deals Facebook blow in data use

Published Tue Jun 23 2020 16:29:32 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Facebook’s fight against German regulators was dealt a blow after a top court agreed with antitrust authorities that the company was abusing its dominant market position in its use of users’ data to better target ads.  The antitrust authorities last year said Facebook had to stop collecting data and combining it with Facebook users’ accounts without their consent. Facebook appealed that decision, and a court ruled it did not have to comply with the regulations until the case had been decided.  But in its decision Tuesday, the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe overturned that decision, saying the company needs to comply.
