Technology giants such as Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Yahoo (YHOO) have rallied against a FCC proposal that would allow broadband providers to charge for a fast lane on the Internet, reports the Wall Street Journal. Netflix said the move would harm and punish U.S. customers while Amazon said it would degrade service for others. The five technological giants had joined together in a letter earlier this month to oppose FCC's previous proposal. Reference Link

08:47 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $780 from $600 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target for shares of Netflix (NFLX) to $780 saying Charter (CHTR) and others offering the streaming service should drive U.S. subscription growth. Further, the company's international subscribers have up to three times faster profit trajectories than their U.S. counterparts, Martin tells investors today in a research note. Netflix will also add advertising revenue "someday," the analyst believes. She keeps a Buy rating on the stock. Netflix shares have sold off recently on Alibaba's (BABA) newly announced streaming service, Martin notes. But she points out China was not in her estimates for Netflix and that she doesn't expect a negative impact on other regions. Shares of Netflix closed yesterday at $654.02.
08:17 EDTTElephant Talk reaches $13.5M global settlement with Grupo Iusacell
Elephant Talk Communications (ETAK) reports it ended its relationship with Grupo Iusacell and agreed to a global settlement worth approximately $13.5M in favor of Elephant Talk, consisting of $12.6M in cash and the remaining balance in exchange for certain obligations of Elephant Talk to Iusacell. The cash payment will be reflected on the company's financial reports for the quarter ended June 30. The termination was to allow for AT&T (T) and Iusacell to ensure consistency of infrastructure suppliers in their businesses, Elephant Talk said.
07:51 EDTGOOGTwitter downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on stalled user growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link
