Illegal UK Governance

Filed under: Governance,Privacy — lenand @ 6:48 am

EC to take UK to court over privacy and data protection, reports Warwick Ashford “The European Commission is suing the UK government for not fully implementing EU rules on the confidentiality of electronic communications. The EC is specifically unhappy that UK law does not comply with EU rules about consent to interception or on enforcement by supervisory laws.

Perhaps they are more worried about telephone hacking than the UK press.  Apart from Channel 4 and the Guardian, the media has avoided raising public awareness of what went on several years ago.

Our lack of supervision may just mean that it is happening more covertly now.   And what might the size of the fine be?
