Facebook verstößt gegen Impressumspflicht und deutsches Datenschutzrecht

After the decision of the court of appeal in September 2017 (judgement V. 22.9.2017 - 5 U 155/14; BeckRS 2017, 129993) on the ineffectiveness of the data privacy declaration on the Facebook app centre, this judgment is a further step towards legal clarity about the terms of use of social networks. The decision of the regional court could also have a fundamental character with regard to the remuneration of social networks.
