Ecommerce Europe co-signs a coalition letter on German Presidency Proposal for an ePrivacy Regulation


On 10 November, Ecommerce Europe  co-signed a joint industry letter on ePrivacy  encouraging EU Member States to consider rejecting the latest German Presidency’s proposal for an ePrivacy Regulation. The letter points out that the current text has taken a step back on most of the core subject matter, such as Art. 6 and 8 and related recitals and recommends Member States to resume work on the basis of earlier draft compromises which considered the complexities of the key issues and comprised the results of years of dialogue.
