The story of how Corporations became legal people using the 14th amendment is pretty famous. But that's a US phenomenon. How did it work out in other countries? Are corporations legal people in the UK, France, Germany, Japan, Canada, Australia etc?

I'm wondering because people are suggesting this Supreme Court decision was a huge mistake... but as far as I can see, there's not that much of a qualitative difference in corporate power in America verses other developed countries.
