Can the United States provide a higher standard of personal data protection than the EU?

Some comments on selected state regulations
  • Bartosz Marcinkowski
Schwerpunkt Europäische Rechtskultur


The view established in EU Member States assumes that the level of personal data protection in EU Member States (and the EU as such) is much higher than that provided by the US legal system. This assumption will (presumably) find its validation in relation to the US federal law. However, many of the solutions found at the state level in the US are only now being introduced into the EU system (and that of the EU Member States). The article highlights that such established views (or stereotypes) can be unfounded (and may lead to even more unsubstantiated conclusions).
