Uh huh, yup. I'm sure he'll be on the next flight over to sort this all out in the Iranian court.


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A judge in southern Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy.

Semiofficial news agency ISNA quotes Ruhollah Momen Nasab, an official with the paramilitary Basij force, as saying Tuesday that the judge also ordered the two apps blocked.

I suppose it's certainly one way to get attention for blocking apps. Kinda silly on Whatsapp though. That's pretty useful, and assuming anything like that has true privacy is asking for bitter disappointment in the worst way, anyay. At least in my humble opinion.

Guess the USA isnt the only country to issue pie in the sky court summons!

Yeah fat chance he will show. And why should he? Iranian law is not international law.

Iranian law is not international law.


Even if it was, I doubt it Zuckerberg would give a rat's @ss. But hey, it's always nice to hear entertaining news from Iran. One more thing that explains why Islamic Revolution was implemented so successfully in that country...

Maybe if the court banned Zuckerberg's apps the money lost for Zuckerberg would be too much not to go.
