Transatlantic Perspectives on Digital Rights and Online Privacy

Transatlantic Perspectives on Digital Rights and Online Privacy It was recently reported that Google has agreed to pay the Federal Trade Commission a record $22.5 million fine for violating online privacy agreements. Earlier this year the Obama Administration released a blueprint for a "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights" for online users. And recently the New America Foundation's Open Technology Institute was one of several organizations who signed on to the "Declaration of Internet Freedom." There is a growing sense that Internet users are entitled to minimum standards of privacy, openness and access online. How has this idea evolved in the United States? And how does it compare to consumer and policy maker expectations in Europe? Is the rise of the Pirate Party, first in Sweden but now also Germany, a reflection of European voter frustration on digital policy issues? Join us for a discussion with a visiting delegation from Germany at an event co-hosted by the New America Foundation and the Heinrich B?ll Foundation.
