Facebook Can Now Be Sued Under French Law

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

Across the Channel, a court in France has ruled that Facebook can be sued under French law. The case related to a man who had his account suspended after posting a photo of a 19th century French painting depicting a naked woman. The man sued Facebook, demanding that the social network re-activate his account and pay him 20,000 Euros. Facebook had tried to argue that users can only sue the social network in California, where the company’s headquarters are based. The French court ruled that this stance went against French law as it made it extremely difficult for French people to sue the company. The ruling could set a precedent that could open the floodgates to users across the globe who want to sue Facebook.
