Ms. Chollet:

Concerning the Moscow Exchange matter below, can you kindly provide
- a description of Meta's Directors and Officers (DO) policies?

The firm behind Cambridge Analytica and the Moscow Exchange timeline below
seem to conflict with Citigroup's Metaverse and Money research. The Moscow
Exchange has distinguished Meta's board as an extremist organization.

But, it Meta's USDP digital asset innovation we find most alarming. We have
shared our USDP concerns with New York State and our Moscow Exchange
concerns with the Federal Government.

As an ethical digital asset franchise, USDP vs. USDD is a riddle for Court.
Our surveillance feedback is not to exasperate Meta's 'DO' exposure.
However, Citigroup's Metaverse and Money research has Mr. Zuckerberg and
Mr. Putin both quoted.

We have a Blockbuster defense:

Perhaps you are old enough to recall when consumers used to have to go to
video stores like Blockbuster Video to rent a movie. And perhaps you recall
the excitement of scoring a copy of the always limited "new release." It
was during these "archaic" times that Congress passed the federal Video
Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) in response to a newspaper publishing Robert
Bork's video rental history during his U.S. Supreme Court nomination.

Fast forward to today, and you might be surprised to learn that some
consumers are now using the VPPA, a 1988 law designed to prevent the
"wrongful disclosure" of video tape sale and rental records, as fuel for a
new wave of class action lawsuits against companies that offer video
content on their websites. Plaintiffs in these new lawsuits seek to stretch
the VPPA beyond just the VHS and Betamax tapes it was originally intended
for, and apply the law to any videos on websites that are embedded with the
code for Google Analytics and/or Meta Platforms Inc.'s Pixel tracking
tool.1 In short, the lawsuits allege that companies using these tracking
tools violate the VPPA because their websites track the videos that
visitors watch and share this viewing data with third parties, namely,
Google and Facebook.

Please respond to our DO inquiry by March 31, 2023.

The very best,

Gunnar Larson
