U.S. Consumer Groups Endorse Proposed European Privacy Law

The Electronic Privacy Information Centre (EPIC) reports that, in a letter to members of the European Parliament, over twenty U.S. consumer organizations expressed support for the new European data protection law. The coalition, including Consumers Union, Consumer Federation of America, and Public Citizen, said that the proposed regulation “provides important new protections for the privacy and security of consumers.” The groups also explained that the European effort will raise privacy standards for consumers in other parts of the world.
