LONDON, Feb 15 — Facebook must face a collective lawsuit valued at around £3 billion (RM18.1 billion) over allegations the social media giant abused its dominant position to monetise users’ personal data, a London tribunal ruled today.

Legal academic Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, who is bringing the case on behalf of around 45 million Facebook users in the UK, says users were not properly compensated for the value of personal data they had to provide.

The Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) initially refused to give the go-ahead to the case against Facebook’s parent company Meta Platforms Inc, which has previously said the lawsuit is “entirely without merit”.

But the CAT ruled today that a revised claim put forward by Gormsen’s lawyers should be allowed to proceed towards a trial.
