Facebook loses sex video case

Facebook must turn over any information it possesses that could help a young Dutch woman find out who published a sex video of her without her consent.

The Amsterdam District Court said in its ruling that if the US company cannot comply because it has erased the relevant data - as it argues - it must allow an external expert access to its servers to verify that. Facebook said it had erased all information relating to the post from its servers, along with the video itself, in February.
