Legislative Reform

During the Reporting Period, we continued fighting for strong data protection rules around the world, including work on the first data protection laws in India, Kenya, and Brazil, pushing for the swift adoption of the EU’s ePrivacy Regulation, and filing comment on the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s proposed American Privacy Framework in the US. We also held a workshop in Delhi with companies large and small on our Lean Data Practices framework, and held a panel in Brussels on the recent US Supreme Court Carpenter decision, which extended warrant protections to cell site location information.

Mozilla continued advocating for EU Member States to enact government vulnerability disclosure programs in the EU Cybersecurity Act, and commented on the EU proposals around cross-border data access for law enforcement. In Australia, we took action on legislation that would give the government new powers to undermine encryption.

We also engaged heavily on the EU Copyright Directive, to minimise the damage to individuals’ rights and the open internet arising from the directive’s upload filters, and spoke out against the EU’s Terrorist Content Regulation.
