Fighting for Privacy Protections.

During the reporting period, Mozilla continued to fight for strong data protection legislation around the world. Kenya passed its first data protection law which we engaged deeply on, we successfully pushed for an African Union Declaration calling for the development of regional privacy principles, a data protection bill was introduced into the Indian Parliament which we’ve been advocating for years for, and we argued for improvements to the California Consumer Privacy Act regulations and implementing CCPA protections globally. We also called for a comprehensive baseline privacy bill in the US and testified before the International Grand Committee in Ottawa, Canada focusing on our privacy practices and ecosystem practices. In other privacy news, we pushed back on the Kenyan government’s proposed digital ID system, in an affidavit we filed in support of a lawsuit by the Kenya Human Rights Commission against the government in the Supreme Court of Kenya.

Standing up for Encryption.

We continued to stand up for strong encryption: engaging with governments and policymakers around the world about DNS over HTTPs, working with other browsers to block a national-scale MITM attack from the Government of Kazakhstan, and continuing to pushback against an Australian law (TOLA) which could be used to compromise encryption. If that wasn’t enough, we filed an amicus brief asking that an order compelling Facebook to give encrypted Messenger messages to law enforcement be made public and intervened in a European Court of Human Rights on government hacking by the UK.

Pushing back against overbroad copyright and intermediary liability.

We advocated against the passage of the CASE Act in the US, which would create a new copyright tribunal with limited avenues for appeal and potentially excessive penalties. We continued to push back on the problematic elements of the EU Terrorist Content regulation, and stepped up our efforts to shape an ambitious policy agenda around the EU’s upcoming reform of its content regulation rules. Additionally, we joined with allies in the tech ecosystem to oppose proposed amendments to India’s intermediary liability rules, which, as written, would promote automated censorship, tilt the playing field in favour of large players, substantially increase surveillance, and prompt a fragmentation of the internet in India that would harm users while failing to empower Indians.
