“U.S. National Privacy Legislation” ADCG Podcast: Ep. 26 - The proposed EU ePrivacy Regulation and its implications for U.S. privacy legislation
The EU’s proposed new ePrivacy Regulation, if adopted, will have broad coverage including electronic communications, cookies, direct marketing, and other instances where data is collected, including the emerging Internet of Things. This episode examines the scope of the regulation, which covers both consumer and corporate electronic communications and would replace the current ePrivacy Directive, (the “EU Cookie Law”). In addition to having sweeping implications for e-commerce in Europe, it may well influence state and national legislation in the U.S.
