Stewart Baker and Max Schrems Debate the Privacy Framework

Bonus Episode 465 of the Cyberlaw Podcast


Max Schrems is the lawyer and activist behind the first and second (and, probably soon, a third) legal challenge to the adequacy of US law to protect European personal data. Thanks to the Federalist Society's Regulatory Transparency Project, Max and I were able to spend an hour debating the law and policy behind Europe's generation-long fight with the United States over transatlantic data flows.  It's civil, pointed, occasionally raucous, and wide-ranging – a fun, detailed introduction to the issues that will almost certainly feature in the next round of litigation over the latest agreement between Europe and the US.  Matthew Heiman acted as moderator.
