British Government Tries To Kill EU Privacy Regulation

judgecorp (778838) writes | about a year and a half ago

EU 0

judgecorp writes "The British Government has joined corporations such as Yahoo, Facebook and BT, in arguing against a tough proposed EU Regulation on Privacy. The UK government's intervention, led by justice minister Lord McNally, wants to scrap the proposed Regulation and replace it with a system of Directives. That's not just a matter of word play, it dilutes the proposals greatly. Regulations must be implemented in all EU member states at once, while the states have freedom on when and how to put a Directive into force."
