Supplement

Legislative Reform

In the Reporting Period, we worked to support the introduction of the Protecting Our Ability to Counter Hacking (PATCH) Act, which codifies and includes important reforms to the U.S. Government’s process for handling vulnerabilities. We joined with other major technology companies to file an amicus brief supporting Facebook’s ability to challenge both a search warrant and an accompanying indefinite gag order. We continued to sponsor a speaker series on government hacking.

We filed comment with the U.S. Copyright Office on their review of Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). In the EU, we’ve worked to influence the EU Commission’s ongoing copyright reform efforts, and continued to engage with the EU e-Privacy Regulation and Data Economy consultation. Together with the Mozilla Community in India, we also published an op-ed highlighting the need for privacy protections in Aadhaar, the Indian national biometric identity system.
