Brussels Briefing on Tech – All you need to know for December 2015

December 15, 2015 - ICT

For the last Brussels Briefing on Tech, Jennifer Baker, unveils the latest updates on the most pressing ICT issues. The dreaded 3-letter word: PNR (Passenger Name Record) was all over the news after it was approved by the LIBE Committee on December 10. The dispute that froze negotiations? The duration of the storage of the data. The General Data Protection Regulation is due to be wrapped up by the end of 2015. ‘Yes, we can’, negotiators seems to be shouting. Finally, great news for holiday-makers: on top of having agreed on a ban of extra roaming charges when travelling in the EU, the Commission has proposed a regulatory agreement on the cross-border portability of online content services. As for the infamous copyright reform and other platform issues… well… you know the drill: too little too soon.
