Re: [ga-sys] EU Ministers Split on Unsolicited Email ban
Joanna and Bill,
I get your points and appreciate them. What I would like to know is; Is there
more public awareness of privacy matters in Europe than in the Americas or is it
that the top-down guys are more responsible and less prone to cave into IP and
police interests? OTOH it may be neither, so my question is why is there more
concern and respect for privacy in Europe and how do we get some of that stuff?
