EPIC's Rotenberg Repeats Call for US to Ratify International Privacy Convention


Speaking before the Council of Europe and the European Commission at a high-level meeting in Brussels, EPIC President Marc Rotenberg urged the United States to ratify "Convention 108," the International Privacy Convention. Rotenberg pointed out that the United States had recently ratified the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime and had urged its allies to do so as well. Rotenberg's remarks followed a letter from EPIC to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton a year earlier asking that the United States begin the process of ratification. Rotenberg said the Convention is a "remarkable document that recognizes the value of innovation and the importance of fundamental freedoms."
