Meta has failed in its first attempt to get a temporary injunction against the ban of its surveillance-based behavioural advertising practices on its Facebook and Instagram platforms imposed by Datatilsynet, the Norwegian data protection authority (DPA), in July, after the Oslo District Court ruled in favour of the DPA. 

Line Coll, a director at Datatilsynet, said, “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling and the result. This is a big victory for people’s data protection rights.”
