Merkel call for data protection rules puts Ireland in spotlight - Technology News
Irish Times on EU unhappiness with Ireland's "light touch" data protection regime:
Hawkes’s appearance last month on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland regarding the US Prism surveillance programme, since posted to YouTube, reheated lingering resentment among many European data authorities.
