Re: Hope?

I'm afraid that following the usual US settlement way, Zuck won't admit any wrongdoing, and will just pay what looks very much alike hush money. Not different from what happened to Google when it was found promoting the illegal sales of drugs.

It's very different from a fine with legal consequences because evidences are found, validated and made public you broke the rules.

Let's hope EU will follow a different path.
