Abstract

Free flow of information is one of the corner stones of free trade and economic growth. Communication networks now connect millions of commercial organizations throughout the world. Ostensibly, the networks could contribute immensely to the welfare of businesses, but there still exist many legal barriers that prevent genuinely free flow of data and information across borders. Strict laws in European countries forbid U.S. businesses to tap private data. This prevents free flow of information within multinational corporations and hinders marketing efforts of organizations that wish to target their products and services to selective consumers in foreign countries. The article reviews cross-border data transfer laws of different countries and the international effort to harmonize legislation.
