Legislative Reform

In the Reporting Period, Mozilla continued to push for reforms to the U.S. Government’s process for handling security vulnerabilities, culminating in the release by the White House of a new charter for the Vulnerabilities Equities Process. We also advocated for European governments to develop government vulnerability disclosure review processes to be included in the forthcoming EU Cybersecurity Act, including as members of the Centre for European Policy Studies Task Force on Software Vulnerability Disclosure.

We’ve been vocal in the debate around India’s first data protection law, and we continued to engage with Europe’s e-Privacy Regulation. We've also contributed to the development of the EU's approach to cross-border access to data, and worked to influence the EU Commission’s ongoing copyright reform efforts.

In July 2017, Mozilla joined with other technology companies in an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court of the United States to reexamine how the 4th Amendment and search warrant requirements should apply in our digital era.
