Privacy and mass torts: TikTok

By Damiën Berkhout

Managing partner Damien Berkhout published an article regarding collective damages actions and privacy violations for Data & Privacyweb. This in response to the recent TikTok WAMCA ruling by the Amsterdam District Court.

In the article, he discusses (i) the enforcement deficit that exists in case of privacy violations due to the so-called collective action problem, (ii) the solution that private enforcement through collective actions can provide for this problem, and (iii) the important lessons that can be learned from the TikTok WAMCA decisions thus far.

You can find the article – which is in Dutch – here:
