My reading of the decision is that it strikes a nail in the coffin of zero rating for commercial considerations.

Whether it covers *other* non-mandatory zero rating - whether any regulator would be bothered to enforce? - is, IMHO, left open.

QT edri: 💪🏽 A big win for users 💪🏻

Earlier this month, Europe’s highest court judged that #ZeroRating is illegal under EU law, which the @edri network has been arguing for years.

A target’s web browsing can leave them open to attack without the need for them to click on a specifically-designed malicious link. This approach involves waiting for the target to visit a website that is not fully secured during their normal online activity. Once they click on a link to an unprotected site, NSO Group’s software can access the phone and trigger an infection.
