Legislative Reform

In this Reporting Period, Mozilla continued to push for strong privacy protections around the world including work on the e-Privacy Regulation in Europe, India’s first data protection law, California’s Privacy Act, as well as engagement on discussions about a privacy law at the US federal level. Additionally, in Carpenter, a case where we filed an amicus brief, the US Supreme Court found that the government must get a warrant to obtain records of where someone’s cell phone has been.

We also continued our engagement with European stakeholders around government vulnerability disclosure in Europe, including through our participation in the Centre for European Policy Studies Task Force on Software Vulnerability Disclosure which published its recommendations in June.

We were also deeply engaged on other fronts in Europe, including pushing for better copyright reform, filing on the European Commission’s consultation on illegal content, fighting for additional protections as part of the EU’s E-Evidence proposal around cross-border data access, and engaging on discussions about the EU’s terrorist content regulation.
