  • There are great differences between the approaches. European privacy policy was discussed since the 1960s and the first data protecion law was established in 1970. As a reaction the FTC published the FIPPs in 1973. The European approach is based on the protection of the common personal rights - while in the US the purpose was on the establishment of market rules.

  • Hi,
    I'm pretty near/close the "Anonymous" approach. I don't think it really matter who was the first. Fot me, it's all about a personal right or a mere market regulation. In any case, great post.
