It may. In the article "In a statement, a spokeswoman for Facebook in Germany said it was waiting to receive the formal decision and would study the findings “to assess any impact on our services”."So facebook will just disable the feature for German users right?

Many of those things are illegal or at least of questionable legal status.To get back to original question, than more companies have serious problem as well. Like those annoying telemarketing companies, where do they get your phone number from? Or leaflets you get in your physical mailbox all the time. Some of the offers claiming you have won 10,000€ are even filed with your personal info like full name and address while you have NO IDEA how this company got it ! So if German court forbids fb spamming, they should also forbid these other practices. But maybe they are illegal in Germany, I don't know.
The ruling was basically to protect those companies! When fb contacted non-members without permission via someone else's registration, it is considered as an unlawful advantage vis-à-vis other companies: distortion of competition.Global corporation collides with laws of nation states.
