Re: Brazil
@DHagar - "Special obligations" sounds like a euphemism to say "you are under a microscope and if we don't like what we see, look out."

FB is apparently stirring up the pot in Germany, where the Wall Street Journal reported FB was forced to change the language in its privacy terms after a court ruled a clause was "unlawful." After failing to implement the changes by the given deadline, they were fined 100,000 Euros.    Then, last month, Germany's Federal Court of Justice ruled that FB's find-a-friend function was illegal, calling it an intrusive form of advertising.

What I find most interesting is the "Anti-trust" allegations, which is really a whole different level than issues with "privacy."  Thoughts?

Re: Brazil
@Mike, interesting dynamic in the international markets.  I noted with interest your statement from the German official "special obligations" of major companies.  One wonders what those expected requirements are, both in trust issues and privacy.

As you point out it appears that governments are flexing their muscles with commerce, data governance, and privacy.  I am wondering if there will not be an attempt to set up an international standard because of Apple and the earlier conflicts with companies/government with Snowden?
