Hosted by Marc Rotenberg (EPIC) & Kristina Irion (Central European University) Panel: Susan Grant, Consumer Federation of America (US), Peter Swire, Moritz College of Law of Ohio State University (US), Julie Brill, Commissioner FTC (US), John B. Morris, Jr., Associate Administrator (Acting) and Director of Internet Policy (US), Sophie Narbonne, CNIL (FR) This panel on consumer protection will review the post release of the Obama Administration's white paper "Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation in the Global Digital Economy." The panel will explore the consequences for consumers when the EU and US fail to reach an agreement on how to protect consumers online. President Obama's administration is working to create a new mechanism that involves a multi-stakeholder process managed by the Department of Commerce. The Department of Commerce first multi-stakeholders process, now underway, addresses mobile application transparency. The force of regulation for the work done by the Department of Commerce would come from the Federal Trade Commission. Key points to be discussed: The US work to create new online consumer privacy protections through expansion of the current sector based approach. Is there an unresolvable US and EU mismatch on how privacy is defined in a digital global economy? How can we measure whether the EU legislative effort and the Obama Administration effort will resolve conflicts in how online consumer privacy will be seamlessly protected?
