Berlin – A German privacy watchdog is demanding that Facebook change its policy requiring users to register with their real names. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), data protection commissioner of Schleswig-Holstein has claimed that the requirement is in violation of German law; however, Facebook says it will not rescind the policy, which the company claims is for the protection of users.

Commissioner Thilo Weichert is quoted by the AP as stating of the issue, “We have the right to prevent this data protection breach…Theoretically we can order the website blocked, but that would be disproportionate.”

Facebook is further quoted as saying in a statement regarding the demand, “We believe the orders are without merit, a waste of German taxpayers’ money and we will fight it vigorously.”
