Meta seeks temporary injunction against Norwegian DPA's advertising ban

07/08/2023 | NRK

Meta has requested a temporary injunction from the Oslo District Court in response to the decision to ban Meta's illegal surveillance-based behavioural advertising practices on its Facebook and Instagram platforms, along with a threat of NOK1 million (£76,000) daily fines imposed by Datatilsynet, the Norwegian Data Protection Authority (DPA). The head of the international section of the DPA, Tobias Judin, said that he expects Meta will to go to trial as it is their common strategy when faced with a decision against them. The DPA maintains that its decision is valid and that there is no good reason for Meta to continue its alleged illegal activities without consequence.
