    The women doing it is the same who wanted Apple to pay 16 Billion in (extra) tax.

    looks like the EU has found it's cash cow
    What's really pathetic...is that Face book has a market cap of $130 billion, and they know and can afford these losses and not even blink about it... get caught? oh well a financial slap on the wrists is all Facebook has to worry about. Not enough of a deterrent if you ask me.

    Yep, fines should start at 5% market cap minimum.

    3 strikes and you are banned from doing business (in the EU)
