Re: when the win finally comes.....

Probably not. They'll likely try to buy off the people bringing the suit. If they succeed, that moves anything down a year at least. Let's assume either this one or another one wins against them. What will happen then is they will update the terms of service to include a bit of new legalese and continue as normal. Like what happened with GDPR. They're clearly collecting stuff and they're not in compliance, but the various data protection authorities aren't doing anything. Unless somebody actually brings out a big fine, they won't do anything. The fines from small or class-action lawsuits are not sufficient for the purpose because the lawsuits are always run by lawyers who want a payoff rather than to see change.
