This question always throws me:
Discuss if the EPR paradox violates special relativity?
The information of the state of one particle is instantaneously transmitted to the other particle, but does this count? Since this information is not usable and does not allow you to transmit a message - it is equivalent to just getting a random set of characters.
The answers to the question states that basically what I have stated in my question. I am, however, more concerned whether it is counted as a violation of special relativity, I am aware that instantaneous communication does occur.
