  • The Brazilian Ministry of Justice recently released its revised Draft Privacy Law on the Protection of Personal Data (translation provided by Gustavo Artes), following a several months-long consultation and review period after the earlier draft was released in January 2015. CIPL had submitted public comments (English and Portuguese) on the January draft and, in October 20015, co-hosted an International Privacy Dialogue in Brasilia, together with the Instituto Brasiliense de Direito Publico in Brasilia, to discuss the draft law and other issues relating to effective privacy protection and responsible information management and use in the modern information economy. One of the speakers in this conference, Bruno Bioni, co-wrote an article with his colleague Renato Leite Monteiro on the “Main Innovations of the Newest Version of the Brazilian Draft Law on the Protection of Personal Data.” (November 9, 2015)
