施雷姆斯的麻烦

巴黎—2015年10月,28岁的奥地利隐私维权活动家、维也纳大学研究生马克斯·施雷姆斯(Max Schrems)提起的诉讼给所谓的安全港(Safe Harbor)协议画上了句号。安全港协议约束美国企业遵守欧盟隐私法。欧洲法院(ECJ)的这一裁决给大约4,500家美国公司的数据收集、处理、传输和储存带来了法律不确定性。

这一裁决让很多欧洲人将施雷姆斯和爱德华·斯诺登(Edward Snowden)相提并论。斯诺登是一位美国情报承包商,他将关于美国全球监控计划的保密信息泄露给公众。事实上,施雷姆斯的官司的许多信息来自斯诺登的披露,其中包括美国国家安全局(NSA)一个计划的细节。美国公司被控根据该计划向NSA提供储存在公司计算机系统中的个人信息。根据ECJ的裁决,美国公司与美国情报机构之间的这一合作违反了欧盟基本权利宪章(EU Charter of Fundamental Rights)关于隐私权利和数据保护的规定。

ECJ释放出明确的信号:除非美国政府修改收集情报的方式,限制对个人数据的获取并采取具体问题具体分析的调查方针,否则消费者信息就不允许通过安全港框架从欧盟传输给美国。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
