Mark Zuckerberg asks for new rules

In The Washington Post Mark Zuckerberg says that Internet needs new regulation in four areas: harmful content, election integrity, privacy and data portability.

…effective privacy and data protection needs a globally harmonized framework.

Mr Zuckerberg also say that “it would be good for the Internet if more countries adopted regulation such as GDPR as a common framework”. We agree to this.

What also is very important is that governmental agencies shouldn’t be allowed to force companies to store information about their citizens. We understand that information, including meta data, about individuals in some cases are important for agencies to have access to, but as per now companies in many countries have to store data in case the agencies later would need it.

We ask for rules that makes is mandatory for telephone operators, ISP:s etc to immediately start collecting information about a specific phone number or IP address after a court order. Until the police and other agencies have a court order, the rest of us should be treated as innocent!
