A fine that takes you 42 minutes of being in business to pay is not a fine, it’s an incentive. It’s a legitimisation of your business model.

@GustavinoBevilacqua
The #GDPR already allows for that, but the best law is meaningless if it's not applied.

Even the $5b fine some US agency gave FB after *years* of investigation, only lowered that *quarters* profit.

I'm getting increasingly convinced that jail time is the only deterrent.
Not much enjoying your $50b from Rikers, eh Zuck?
