EU versus USA: Das grundlegend unterschiedliche Verständnis über unsere Daten und wer sie wie nutzen darf

Ob ich nun von neuem kalten Krieg schreiben und reden würde, sei dahingestellt, aber ein sehr pointierte und lesenswerter Beitrag auf Wired v.

The EU stands firmly for the interests of the individual. The regulatory language of the GDPR cogently expresses its view, harmonizing data protection rules throughout the EU and requiring that any company, anywhere, must respect the data rights of EU citizens, or face stiff penalties. Europeans must provide positive consent for the ways their data is used, and they have the right to access and erase that data, as well as the “right to be forgotten.” In the opposite corner sits the United States and the giant US corporations that trade in personal data for profit, and whose practices have expanded largely unchecked. One ideology puts the control of personal data in the hands of the individual, the other cedes that control to the corporation. (A third approach is state control of data, which is emerging as China’s social credit system, though that remains as yet an internal policy.) …

The economic power of America’s data giants—Facebook, Google, Amazon—is built on individuals freely exchanging their data for “free” services. As noted by the New York Times, “any attempt to curb the use of consumer data would put the business model of the ad-supported internet at risk.” … There simply isn’t enough popular pressure to force a wholesale revision of US policy.

Jetzt können wir noch die Deutsche Post ins Spiel bringen, aber das macht Gunnar morgen bei unserer -Diskussion.

Jetzt könnten wir noch Hackerangriffe auf Datenbestände diskutieren, aber ich glaube für Ostermontag ist das eine gute und ausreichende Zusammenfassung. Danke dafür.
