Hamburg To Fine Facebook Over Facial Recognition Feature 195

An anonymous reader writes "Johannes Caspar, data protection commissioner for the German state of Hamburg, today declared he will soon fine Facebook over its use of biometric facial recognition technology. He said 'further negotiations are pointless' because the company had ignored a deadline he set for it to remove the feature. German authorities could fine Facebook up to €300,000 ($420,000)."

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
