Different ways of reading the same news:

~~"US is not worthy of special treatment regarding data privacy and is to be considered a third country"


~~ "How dares the CJEU put privacy before the economy! Privacy Shield is good!"

I find it interesting that the
article repeats multiple times "The European Commission and U.S. officials maintain the Privacy Shield improves privacy protections."
As if it was worth saving.

What they doesn't mention is that Privacy Shield came to be because Safe Harbour, the thing regulating data transfers before, was also deemed invalid (AKA: this has happened before!)
And well, Privacy Shield wasn't great even in 2016, much less now:

Now, I wonder if, like back in 2015, the EU and the US will start rushing to reach an agreement that puts a patch on things and calms public opinion without actually addressing the issues or, you know, just stop giving US companies a comparatively favourable treatment when it comes to data privacy regulations.
