With my last drop of CJEU judgments brainpower for the week, here are some key points from the global takedown of #Facebook defamatory comments case published yesterday #Glawischnig Long thread alert! 1/x curia.europa.eu/juris/document…
Setting the scene: this is not a data protection or #privacy case. This is a case concerning deletion of information, but grounded on defamation. It is irrelevant for the case at hand that those comments contained personal data, even if they did. 2/
Fun fact: the #GDPR specifically excludes from its scope of application those situations which also fall under the scope of liability rules for intermediary service providers, Art 12 to 15 from eCommerce Directive, precisely what the CJEU was asked to interpret. 3/

1/6 Nobel laureate @JosephEStiglitz: Multinational companies will increasingly file massive cases against host countries when #ClimateChange policies affect their profits. #ISDS reform is needed to stop companies fighting climate rules. @SebastienMalo news.trust.org/item/201905290…
2/6 #ISDS cases can "instill fear of environmental regulations, #ClimateChange regulations because you know that it's going to be costly" for governments, @JosephEStiglitz said. "It's litigation terrorism." @IISD_ELP
3/6 @JosephEStiglitz: #UNCITRAL #ISDS reform process is a rare opportunity to end "pernicious litigation.” I’d add: the @Energy_Charter, which gives carbon-intensive energy investors access to #ISDS, must be aligned with the low-carbon transition. @ogeltdm transnational-dispute-management.com/article.asp?ke…

2⃣ El arbitraje de inversiones o mecanismo de ‘solución de controversias inversor-Estado’ es un privilegio especial del que han abusado muchas multinacionales. Es un aspecto desconocido de los tratados comerciales para gran parte de la sociedad. #StopISDS cuartopoder.es/economia/2019/…
