[liberationtech] What PRISM means for Europe / Brussels

Hi,

Just a short note from Brussels where we're now seeing (and starting to
explain) the massive US lobbying under a different light... Last year,
the Commission presented a legislative proposal to update privacy laws
in Europe. EDRi has been reporting on this for a while now and since
then, lobbying efforts have only intensified: http://www.edri.org/US-DPR
and http://www.edri.org/us-eudatap. A year ago, we were particularly
worried about the fact that Article 42 on access to European data in the
absence of an EU legal framework disappeared from in the first draft of
the proposal. Even though this article has been re-introduced by the
European Parliament, pressure is high to kick it out again.

It would now be interesting to see what amendments to the data
protection reform have actually been written by the companies that are
cooperating with the NSA - to weaken Europe's standards: see
http://lobbyplag.eu/docs and http://lobbyplag.eu/map.

Best,
Kirsten
