facebook and no nudity

the french court says facebook can be judged under french law, and can be sued for cancelling a french person’s facebook page, because it posted a woman’s private part which turned out to be a famous painting. well, ok it may have set a precedent that facebook can be sued under french law. but french law must accept an organisation can impose rules on its members, which should be applied indiscrimately to everyone of them. 

facebook should argue that when u join u agree to its terms and conditions, and it specifically said no pictures of private parts allowed, in fact no nudity. so u want to join and be a member, u follow the rules. that seems to be the way isn’t it? any organisation can impose whatever  rules it likes and when u sign up to join u agree to its rules. so it would be discriminatory if facebook allows this person to post a nude picture, whether it is a famous painting or his wife’s, it does not matter. he still cannot do it when everyone else can not do it. 

i am neutral as to whether facebook is good or not, but  i should have thought there is no case to answer in this instance.
