SO this happened this past week:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/supreme-court-facebook-bc-douez-1.4174804

What gets my attention is this detail as quoted:

"The British Columbia Supreme Court approved her suit, but the provincial Court of Appeal stayed the case, saying it should properly be pursued in California, where Facebook has its head office.

The appeal court said all potential users of Facebook must agree to its terms of use, which include a forum selection and choice-of-law clause requiring that disputes be resolved in California according to California law.

In its 4-3 split decision, however, the Supreme Court found the clause unenforceable."
