I just came across this article, don't know the nitty gritty details, but this is crazy... A European Court ordered Facebook to remove a post, world wide. People is the US will post twice as much about a topic when asked/told not too.
"The case revolves around an Austrian politician, Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek, who sought to have Facebook (FB) remove disparaging comments about her that had been posted on an Irish person's page. An Austrian court had found the remarks to be harmful to her reputation by insulting and defaming her.
The European Court of Justice ruled that Facebook must remove information as well as block access to that information worldwide.
"This judgment raises critical questions around freedom of expression and the role that internet companies should play in monitoring, interpreting and removing speech that might be illegal in any particular country," Facebook said in a statement."
