Morrison & Foerster LLP | Miriam H. Wugmeister, Karin Retzer, & Cynthia Rich

(Late Submission)
Attached please find our submission in response to the Department of Commerce’s Notice of Inquiry in the Matter of Information Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy.

This paper was first published in the Georgetown International Journal of Law in 2007. The disparate rules and burdens on organizations created by international cross border limitations discussed in the attached paper remain of crucial importance. More countries have passed laws restricting the free flow of information and the problems for business, governments and consumers have been exacerbated. As our economy continues to become more global and information continues to be central to the way business is done, these issues will only become more acute.
We urge the U.S. Government to lead the international discussion on these crucial issues and work to find methods to ensure that information can continue to flow freely so that innovation is not stifled, consumers can continue to have access to the products and services they desire, businesses can compete and governments can work together.
Thank you for your consideration of our comments.
