Google: Europeans need to oppose US government privacy breach




Residents of the European Union, just like Americans can resist abuse of their personal data by the US government. This is suggested by Google, which says to worry about the damaged relations between the US and Europe.

google Google’s chief legal officer, David Drummond, signs that Americans in most EU countries, it may file a lawsuit if they believe that a government is incorrectly handled with their data, but that the other can not. “The US Privacy Act would have to be extended to Europeans,” said Drummond.

Drummond, who still furious last year responded to the alleged burglary of the NSA on Google’s internal network, stressed that governments “have the duty to protect civilians.” According to the lawyer, the balance has beaten however: the government would make too much infringement on the rights of individual citizens.

Thursday, a delegation of the European Commission in Washington, and that is according to Drummond is a good time to “take a new attitude.” Obama said earlier that he wants that Europeans have the same protection as Americans; according to Drummond is now up to the US Congress to take action.
