Facebook Legal Battle: London Gives Green Light to £3bn Action

Facebook £3bn legal action given go-ahead in London

A London judge has given the green light for a £3 billion legal action against Facebook to proceed. The lawsuit alleges that Facebook illegally collected and stored biometric data of millions of users without their consent.

The legal action, which is being led by a group called Facebook You Owe Us, claims that the social media giant violated the UK’s Data Protection Act by harvesting biometric data through its photo-tagging feature. The lawsuit seeks compensation for the affected users and aims to hold Facebook accountable for its alleged data privacy violations.

Facebook has denied any wrongdoing and has vowed to defend itself in court. The company has argued that the data collection was done with user consent and that it has strong data protection policies in place.

This case is just one of many legal challenges that Facebook is currently facing around the world over its handling of user data. The outcome of this lawsuit could have significant implications for the tech giant and for the future of data privacy regulations.
