Schrems Pursues Legal actions to Block Data Transfers to the US

EU Privacy Advocate Max Schrems made new legal moves following the judgment of the European Court of Justice that struck down the Safe Harbor data transfer pact. He filed complaints with data protection officials in Ireland, Germany and Belgium to to block Facebook data transfers to the United States. Schrems says he wants to "ensure that this very crucial judgment is also enforced in practice when it comes to the US companies that are involved in US mass surveillance." NGOs in the Europe and the United Stated have urged governments to update domestic privacy laws and strengthen international commitments to enable the continued transfer of data between the EU and the US.
