Schrems Responds to US Lobby Groups on Safe Harbor

In a brief but clearly argued letter to European data protection authorities, Max Schrems writes that "attempts by lobby groups and the US government to 'reinterpret' or 'overturn the clear judgement of the Union's highest court are fundamentally flawed." Schrems brought the successful case to the European Court of Justice that struck down the Safe Harbor arrangement. The Schrems letter, released on International Data Protection Day, also states that a new transfer agreement must provide "protection against government surveillance and "essentially equivalent" protection against the commercial use of data by certified companies." Max Schrems received the 2013 EPIC Champion of Freedom Award.
