What do you think of the new EU law that says if a commit on Facebook is defamatory it has to be removed worldwide?

I’ve seen multiple issues with Isla given that I don’t live in EU country there really is nothing they can do except ban Facebook in EU member countries.

We have something called freedom of speech in the United States. Since Facebook is a public forum and not a Publisher they have to comply with free speech laws in the United States. If they are a publisher they don’t have to comply with Free speech law.

So what we could see here is someone post a deflationary comment on Facebook the EU thinks it bad and requires Facebook to remove it around the world. However if the poster goes to the United States Supreme Court our Supreme Court who has to up hold the first amendment could rule in favor of the person making the defamatory commit and in which case it would be against U. S law to remove the post and it would be against the law for the post to remain up world wide in the EU.

So what what happens if American law counters EU law and Facebook isn’t allowed to remove a defamatory comment that we’re made in the United States.
