Glyn Moody reporting on Facebook’s response to turning over data it keeps on users:

Claiming that certain aspects of your personal data is “a trade secret or intellectual property of Facebook Ireland Limited or its licensors” seems pretty extraordinary.

In Europe you can request that any Internet company hands over the data that they have on you, and a group has begun to do so with Facebook. It is very interesting and I have no idea what data Facebook would say is “a trade secret”, but now I really want to know.
