Google declares open war on Europe’s privacy rights » The Privacy Surgeon

Google declares open war on Europe’s privacy rights » The Privacy Surgeon | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

(Excerpt)


"Yesterday I published a satirical blog about Google’s contempt for privacy regulators – particularly those in Europe. It was composed as the sort of letter that Google would secretly love  – but would never dare – to send to these regulators.  It was bitter, sarcastic, bitchy, accusatory, threatening, childish and – above all – an utter mockery of any claim Google has of holding the high ground on privacy protection.

 

It was so over the top, I reckoned, that no reasonable person could ever construe it as real. How wrong I was, and how out of touch I can be.

I started receiving worried calls minutes after it was published. First from friends and colleagues who should know me better. Then from a couple of journalists who I thought surely would have instinctively seen the satire. Messages appeared on Facebook debating the letter’s validity, with some correspondents fuming that such a missive should have been sent to Europe."

Major Telecoms Operators Support Push for Level-Playing Field

 

Today, Vice-President Viviane Reding is meeting Luigi Gambardella, chairman of ETNO, who represents the leading telecommunications network operators in Europe to discuss the EU Data Protection rules proposed by the European Commission in January 2012 (see IP/12/46and IP/13/57).

Vice-President Reding and ETNO (the European Telecommunications Network Operators' Association) jointly call on the European Parliament and Council to ensure that provisions that facilitate a level playing field between all actors of the ICT industry remain a key building block of the EU Data Protection Regulation, in order to guarantee fair competition between EU companies and those based outside of the Union but which operate on Europe's single market. This will guarantee consistent and robust data protection for all consumers. Data Protection is a fundamental right enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. EU citizens’ personal data must be granted the same level of protection, regardless of the geographical location or the economic sector of the service provider.
