USDOJ And UK Propose Protective Exchange of Electronic Data

Today during our debate on “Data Warrants Across the Pond: Envisioning A More Sustainable Process” representatives from the USDOJ and UK released a white paper titled “Proposed United States – United Kingdom Agreement on Secure and Privacy – Protective Exchange of Electronic Data for the Purposes of Countering Serious Crime, Including Terrorism.” The proposal comes one day after the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals decided the long awaited Microsoft v. U.S. decision. Later in the day the USDOJ distributed its legislative language to resolve the issue.

The panel debated the issues and discussed the proposal in front of a packed room of Congressional staff.

The video, audio, photos of the debate are available here.
