How Federal Privacy Legislation Could Affect US-EU-UK Relations
With more than 30 bills filed in the United States Congress since 2018 to regulate privacy with overwhelming support from the public, it looks like the US might be going through a ‘privacy renaissance’. This week, FPF Senior Counsel Dr. Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna’s article, “America’s ‘privacy renaissance’: What to expect under a new presidency and Congress,” was featured in the Ada Lovelace Institute Blog. In the article, Gabriela lays out similarities and differences between the two major federal privacy bills currently in Congress, the SAFE DATA Act and the Consumer Online Privacy Act (COPRA), before breaking down the potential implications that a federal privacy bill passed by the incoming Biden administration would have on US-EU-UK relations during a time that the President of the EU Commission called, “an unprecedented window of opportunity to set a joint EU-US tech agenda.”
