Data Protection in the European Union

Our group tomorrow is going to talk about privacy law between the United States and the European Union. I am concentrating on data protection between the two countries. A relevant court case which broadened the European Union General Privacy Directive is the Lindqvist decision. I will discuss it more in our presentation, but I felt it would be relevant to post the entire scenario of the case on the blog. Here is the link: http://www.olswang.com/news.asp?page=newssing&sid=125&aid=670. With the European Union having more uniform rules with privacy and the United States being more self-regulatory, how do you think the courts would have interpreted a case like this in the United States. Let me know what you think after hearing our presentation tomorrow.
