    Court Transcript Exposes Facebook's View: User Privacy Is Legally Non-Existent

    A new report by The Intercept has unearthed some stunning quotes from Facebook's lawyers as the controversial social media giant recently battled litigation in California courts related to the Cambridge Analytica data sharing scandal. The report notes that statements from Facebook's counsel "reveal one of the most stunning examples of corporate doublespeak certainly in Facebook’s history" concerning privacy and individual users' rights.
    Contrary to CEO Mark Zuckerberg's last testimony before Congress which included the vague promise, “We believe that everyone around the world deserves good privacy controls,” the latest courtroom statements expose in shockingly unambiguous terms that Facebook actually sees privacy as legally "nonexistent" to use The Intercept's apt description of what's in the courtroom transcript up until now largely ignored in media commentary.

    The courtroom debate was first reported by Law360, and captures the transcribed back and forth between Facebook lawyer Orin Snyder of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and US District Judge Vince Chhabria.
    The Intercept cites multiple key sections of the transcript from the May 29, 2019 court proceedings showing Snyder arguing essentially something the complete opposite of Zuckerberg's public statements on data privacy, specifically, on the idea that users have any reasonable expectation of privacy at all.
    Facebook's lawyer argued:
    There is no privacy interest, because by sharing with a hundred friends on a social media platform, which is an affirmative social act to publish, to disclose, to share ostensibly private information with a hundred people, you have just, under centuries of common law, under the judgment of Congress, under the SCA, negated any reasonable expectation of privacy.
    As The Intercept commented of the blunt remarks, "So not only is it Facebook’s legal position that you’re not entitled to any expectation of privacy, but it’s your fault that the expectation went poof the moment you started using the site (or at least once you connected with 100 Facebook “friends”)."
    Judge Chhabria took issue with the "binary" nature of Facebook's conception of privacy in stating, “like either you have a full expectation of privacy, or you have no expectation of privacy at all,” and put the following scenario to Facebook's legal team:
    If I share [information] with ten people, that doesn’t eliminate my expectation of privacy. It might diminish it, but it doesn’t eliminate it. And if I share something with ten people on the understanding that the entity that is helping me share it will not further disseminate it to a thousand companies, I don’t understand why I don’t have — why that’s not a violation of my expectation of privacy.
    Snyder's response was illuminating regarding Facebook's approach to users' privacy:
    Let me give you a hypothetical of my own. I go into a classroom and invite a hundred friends. This courtroom. I invite a hundred friends, I rent out the courtroom, and I have a party. And I disclose — And I disclose something private about myself to a hundred people, friends and colleagues. Those friends then rent out a 100,000-person arena, and they rebroadcast those to 100,000 people. I have no cause of action because by going to a hundred people and saying my private truths, I have negated any reasonable expectation of privacy, because the case law is clear.
    And more from The Intercept's commentary, which concluded: "Using Facebook is a depressing party taking place in a courtroom, for some reason, that’s being simultaneously broadcasted to a 100,000-person arena on a sort of time delay. If you show up at the party, don’t be mad when your photo winds up on the Jumbotron. That is literally the company’s legal position."
    Repeatedly, Snyder blamed the users for their own surveillance throughout the metaphors and hypothetical situations presented:
    This is why every parent says to their child, “Do not post it on Facebook if you don’t want to read about it tomorrow morning in the school newspaper,” or, as I tell my young associates if I were going to be giving them an orientation, “Do not put anything on social media that you don’t want to read in the Law Journal in the morning.” There is no expectation of privacy when you go on a social media platform, the purpose of which, when you are set to friends, is to share and communicate things with a large group of people, a hundred people.
    And a another key question from what appeared an incredulous Judge Chhabria: “If Facebook promises not to disseminate anything that you send to your hundred friends, and Facebook breaks that promise and disseminates your photographs to a thousand corporations, that would not be a serious privacy invasion?"
    Reflecting a viewpoint that Facebook considers almost no scenario at all a potential "privacy invasion," Snyder responded:
    “Facebook does not consider that to be actionable, as a matter of law under California law.”
    Thus Facebook admitted in court that even when the company gives a user the impression it will not share private information which that user has not authorized for public view, should the platform violate this, it is still not illegal nor does it violate Facebook's own standards.

    Facebook is a Re-Education Camp for many people online because of they way the algorithms push friend and news feeds to people. It also serves as a perpetual Litmus Test, serving the elite and enabling them to decide who they want and who they dont, also based on AI algorithms. Facebook it seems is replacing Education for the Sort and Catalog functions of School, however, it is as insidious as it gets.

    No it's the onion but the data they have on you can be used against you and the deepstate has access to it. I never had a Facebook but I had a Myspace and they had a data breach and I keep getting emails from some scammer saying that he hacked my computer and the proof is he knows my Myspace password from 2008. He then demands bitcoins otherwise he will send weird pictures to my contacts. He doesn't mention Myspace but I know that's the only place they would of got it I have used different passwords for different websites for this reason. He says he snapped embarrassing pictures of me with a webcam while watching weirdo porn but I don't watch weirdo porn or use a webcam. I can only imagine they spam all of the people in the Myspace leak in hopes to scam someone who does watch weirdo porn so they pay them money.

    I was being sarcastic, and yeah, Onion. Point still remains that the only control we have over our data is to either put it out there or dont put it out there. Once its out there, all control is lost. Bank of America might just as well sell the $#@! to the people who would get it all in data breaches anyway, and I would not be at all surprised to find out they did. All of it can and will be used to humiliate people / damage their reputations / enforce total behavioral control. Things we think are good about ourselves someone else can analyze until they find something "wrong" and use that against us. Other side is once total obedience is had, the choices we may be offered will be to either kill such and such guys family for having the wrong political views, or they will kill yours.

    Yeah I am only saying it because I am pretty positive I know who the scammer is I think they are a RPF poster who has a lot of sad mental issues.

    This is a common scam. They don't have a thing on you, just fishing. I get these in my website emails all the time.

    Yeah I know there is nothing on me, I was only posting it because I am pretty sure they are some sad poster on RPF with mental problems who didn't like a post I made because they are a special snowflake.

    I don't think it was aimed directly at you. This came up in another forum awhile back and it turned out just about everyone had received the same spoofing email. So it's a common universal scam. And they rig the source as coming from your own email address so it makes you think your email has been hacked. Here is one I got not too long ago.

    Did it have your myspace password? I was dumb enough to use the same handle on here as on there. I had some loser threaten me with doxxing for what I posted before, neg repped me and insinuated he would kill me. He probably has a couple sock puppet accounts here too, he likes to obfusciate his writing when he writes on the account he threatened me with.

    It very well could be, Just pointing out that hacked account passwords are actually more common than one would think. I have had even gmail hacked before. And someone hacked and took over my Twitter account one time. vBulliten forums and Myspace have been hacked for user info passwords in the past...

    So its just a coincidence that the guy who threatened to dox me, neg repped me and said he would kill me and then RIGHT after that he changed my reddit password and started sending me scam emails with info that he got from the dark web?

    No... There could be something to that for sure and not defending at all. But the chances are, it very well could be coincidence and strange timing. Both have happened to me before. I'm just sharing that the extortion email you mentioned is a common scam so I would take that out of the equation, it was most likely coincidental timing on that one.

    He isn't very imaginative, he isn't the type to reinvent the wheel or anything. I am betting he used the "common scam" in order to make me think it was a coincidence or that it wasn't him. He hacked into my sprint account too and ordered a bunch of golden iphones.

    I have made some "friends" like that over the years too... I had to prove it to the admins of my haunts and get them booted so that they were not a problem for anyone again. There were a couple on the Daily Paul years ago that ended up being part of why it was shut down because they were pulling this crap on other users "under the table" like that and were allowed to stay when they should have been booted.

    I don't want to complain to an admin he would probably go after them, this guy is really sick in the head.

    I guess if it has stopped then it might be best left alone unless there are more problems. I hate having to personally "eat" a situation like that. Tell you what though... I would not be the admin he would want to go after. And if he can hack then he should be smart enough to know you do not go after anyone who has your IP address and just one registration conformation email to a domain server. It would only take a few days to research and investigate clues that would lead directly to his physical address. I have done it many times myself as an administrator. Funny how they disappear when you tell them what their own physical address is.

    I have a lot of respect for domain administrators who as an industry standard respect your privacy like they do. They have a LOT of tools available to them and they could ruin your world if they really wanted to. It would be a very very poor idea to go after any domain admin. They could have cops knocking on your front door within a week if they wanted to.

    I don't think it has stopped, I just don't give a $#@!, the dude is hella crazy and I have been occupying space in his head rent free.

    See, now I would give him even more homework to stress over and take more, bug the crap out of him and make him dream about it... lol
