This is a huge step forward.


Makes me think of the antitrust legislation back around Teddy Roosevelt’s time. Given our reliance on the internet any kind of monopoly is indeed dangerous. Is Google next? I sure hope so.


Get fucked, Zuckerberg!


Good, Facebook spun off would be very positive. I’d love to invest in Oculus or Whatsapp and this will improve all components of their business that’s not Facebook. There was never a good justification to require a Facebook login for Oculus.


It’s not a “request,” it’s a *motion.* It’s not asking the judge to exercise discretion, it’s attempting to persuade the judge the law requires dismissal. That distinction matters. Those are totally different decisionmaking paradigms.
