Anyone interested in Internet Governance might be interested as
subscribing (free of charge) to this newsletter from the Geneva Internet

Of potential interest this month is the new EU-US Privacy Shield,
summarised in the newletter. I wonder whether that affects the regular
requirement from European Registrars to seek a data retention waiver
(like this one: https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2015-12-09-en )
Kindest regards,

Dear Colleagues,

Issue 13 of the /Geneva Digital Watch/ newsletter
<http://giplatform.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=4fd1ca1d5793b4d797ce48eb0&id=9fece33442&e=60e39045f6> is
out! The issue provides the latest digital policy updates which took
place in July and August. The main highlights:

  * Summer is generally a quiet period for policy-making. This year,
    however, July and August have been uncharacteristically busy. NATO
    declared cyberspace as its fourth operation domain; the EU-US
    Privacy Shield was approved, while the Internet was at the centre of
    terrorist and security threats. State responsibility in cyberspace
    is being discussed, while e-commerce is gaining momentum.
  * Nine months after the invalidation of the Safe Harbour Agreement,
    the European Commission confirmed that the new EU-US Privacy Shield
    affords adequate protection to the privacy of EU citizens when their
    data are transferred to the US. We explore the seven key privacy
    principles that US companies must adhere to, as well as the new
    commitments made by the US government in relation to the
    implementation of the Shield.
  * Pokemon Go has achieved massive popularity. With its interplay
    between the virtual and physical experiences of our reality, the
    game brings into sharper focus many issues related to how the
    Internet is used and how it affects our society. It also has
    implications on many digital policy areas. 
  * The IG Barometer of Online Media reveals the top three debated
    topics so far this summer: access and digital divide, Internet
    Protocol numbers and root zone, and the Internet of Things. We give
    an overview of the main developments in these three areas.
  * Included in this issue are events that took place in International
    Geneva, and the main global digital policy events in September.
  * The Brazilian version on Issue 13, in Portuguese, will be available
