Alexey Ivanov: “The decision of the German authorities to ban the export of personal user data is quite revolutionary”
The director of the Institute commented in the Vzglyad newspaper regarding the successfully contested Facebook court case resolutions by the German authorities to ban the export of personal data of the company's users. The director of the Institute commented in the Vzglyad newspaper regarding the successfully contested Facebook court case resolutions by the German authorities to ban the export of personal data of the company's users. Facebook Inc. was successfully challenged in a German court via the decision of the Federal Cartel Office of the Republic of Germany, which prohibited the company from exporting personal data of users collected by it on WhatsApp and on third-party sites, Reuters writes. The High Regional Court of Dusseldorf overturned the decision of the department, adopted in February this year, when the regulator justified its decision by the fact that the use of a pool of user data collected by Facebook on various platforms is an abuse of the dominant market position of the social network. “The decision of the Bundeskartellamt (Federal Cartel Office) is quite revolutionary, maybe not directly affecting the business of digital monopolies, but in formulating a new antitrust policy,” said Alexey Ivanov. "Much of what legislators in Germany are now considering was proposed in Russia more than a year ago as part of the first edition of the Fifth Antitrust Package, but was rejected due to the dependence of the legal community on archaic ideas about the role of antitrust regulation in the development of the new economy," Ivanov added. “Evidently, we will now borrow the new legislative experience from the Germans after its adoption,” concluded Alexey.
