In the near future, the conflict between Facebook and EU privacy regulators is likely to escalate. This is mainly because the European Supreme Court next week will weigh up the argument put forward by the Belgian data protection regulator, which believes that they should have the right to pursue the US social media giant’s violations in Billy.
