So the EU Court of "Justice" aka Jewstice, is Jewing over the EU and
claiming jewrisdiction over the entire world (could never have
predicted this) by providing a fig leaf of Jewdicial sanction to the
Facebook Political Complex in their zealous hand wringing censorship.
Speak anyway (of course):

  The Court Of Justice Of The European Union Limits Free Speech

    On October 3, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU)
    ruled in a judgment that Facebook can be ordered by national
    courts of EU member states to remove defamatory material

      "She [Glawischnig-Piesczek] is seeking an order that Facebook
      Ireland remove a comment published by a user on that social
      network harmful to her reputation, and allegations which were
      identical and/or of an equivalent content.

      "The Facebook user in question had shared on that user's
      personal page an article from the Austrian online news magazine entitled 'Greens: Minimum income for refugees should
      stay'. That had the effect of generating on that page a
      'thumbnail' of the original site, containing the title and a
      brief summary of the article, and a photograph of Ms
      Glawischnig-Piesczek. That user also published, in connection
      with that article, a comment which the Austrian courts found to
      be harmful to the reputation of Ms Glawischnig-Piesczek, and
      which insulted and defamed her. This post could be accessed by
      any Facebook user."

    The judgment has brought concern among free speech organizations.
    Thomas Hughes, the executive director of ARTICLE 19, a non-profit
    organization that works on "protecting the right to freedom of
    expression around the world," said:

      "This judgment has major implications for online freedom of
      expression around the world.

      "Compelling social media platforms like Facebook to
      automatically remove posts regardless of their context will
      infringe our right to free speech and restrict the information
      we see online...

      "The ruling also means that a court in one EU member state will
      be able to order the removal of social media posts in other
      countries, even if they are not considered unlawful there. This
      would set a dangerous precedent where the courts of one country
      can control what internet users in another country can see.
      This could be open to abuse, particularly by regimes with weak
      human rights records."

    According to ARTICLE 19:

      "The judgment means that Facebook would have to use automated
      filters to identify social media posts that are considered to
      be 'identical content' or 'equivalent content'. Technology is
      used to identify and delete content that is considered illegal
      in most countries, for example, child abuse images. However,
      this ruling could see filters being used to search text posts
      for defamatory content, which is more problematic given that
      the meaning of text could change depending on the context.
      Although the ruling has said only content that is essentially
      the same as the original unlawful post should be removed, it is
      likely that automated filters will make errors".

    The judgment "undermines the long-standing principle that one
    country does not have the right to impose its laws on speech on
    another country," Facebook commented in a statement.
