Google Inc.'s top privacy official said the European Union’s "flawed" attempt to overhaul data-protection rules is "dead" and urged politicians to go back to the drawing board.

"Europe's much-ballyhooed, and much-flawed, proposal to re-write its privacy laws for the next 20 years collapsed," Peter Fleischer, global privacy counsel at Mountain View, California-based Google, said in a blog post today. "The old draft is dead, and something else will eventually be resurrected in its place." Google's Global Privacy Counsel Says EU Privacy Laws "Flawed" [bloomberg.com]
Fleischer’s comments come a day after EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding showed no interest in dropping the rules she first proposed two years ago. In a speech yesterday, she said the 28-nation bloc must “move full speed ahead” toward clinching a deal on data protection.
