BSA | The Software Alliance is pleased that today’s decision by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) upheld Standard Contractual Clauses, consistent with BSA’s amicus brief and arguments submitted to the Court, but is disappointed that the ECJ invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield.
Reuters, July 16, 2020. ”The good news is that SCCs (Standard Contractual Clauses) remain valid. But today’s Privacy Shield decision will create challenges for more than 5,300 businesses, 70% of which are SMEs, across a range of sectors at a time when the ability to send data abroad is crucial to the economic recovery from COVID-19,” said Victoria Espinel, CEO and President.
