  1. @25, @30: Facebook is on the list of the US Safe Harbor Arrangement, so yes european citizens expect that Facebook follows these principles.

  3. And…? The US has no such law thankfully, and unless Bush Sr’s “new world order” has arrived unnoticed, the US still has national soverignty and the Constitution which grants Congress and Congress alone the right to pass laws.

  5. You have a right to choose whether or not you associate with Robert. If you give anyone personal information, make sure you want them to have it. If not, don’t add them as a contact. You have a responsibility of protecting your own privacy.

    Law means little and it’s certainly isn’t an area I would care to even address. Can anyone understand the ridiculousness of what some people are saying?

    I have collected a list of contacts in my Hotmail Account, then I want to move to GMail. Do I need to contact all of my contacts to see if I can change my address book? That’s ridiculous.

    And it would be just as ridiculous to suggest 20 years ago, that my mother would need to get permission from everyone in her address book to transfer them to the new address book.

    We should be concerned with privacy issues, but if we spend our time debating about whether someone we decided was our friend and we exchanged personal data with should be able to transfer it to another service, then we will ignore the bigger issues. There are serious privacy issues out there, this is not one of them. I think EU has enough problems dealing with the loss personal data on 25 million people.

  9. wow, y’all need to lighten up. It’s FACEBOOK, if you don’t want to be on there, then don’t sign up. It’s a tool and those who sign up know what it’s purpose is. If you don’t know someone online, why would you trust them any more than a stranger on the street. You control who you “befriend” and who you don’t. “byer beware”

  11. I think that in this case the use of an agent provided by another company is where the problem resides, if Robert would have written a script that downloaded the said information to his pc there wouldn’t be a real issue.

    In this case the user trusted Robert, but not the company which as an agent is running the script (and in former days the name of Plaxo didn’t sound as a very reliable party to store you’re data because of their “spamming practices”.

    By befriending Robert people gave their consent to him for using this address. They did not solicit to running the risk that another company would use the data in any way..
