Default Facebook Faces Lawsuit Over Facial-Recognition Feature

Facebook is facing a lawsuit over {insert new feature}. The {insert company/country} says that, unless changes are made, they will file a lawsuit. Facebook responded by saying that it is in compliance with {insert company/country} and that legal action isn't necessary. {insert quote from plaintiff / defendant below} "This requires storing a comprehensive database of the biometric features of all users," the organization reportedly wrote in a German-language statement published on its Web site. "Facebook has introduced this feature in Europe, without informing the user and without obtaining the required consent. Unequivocal consent of the parties is required by both European and national data protection law."
