In an increasingly global economy, not only is the pool the digital evidence potentially multi-lingual, but also subject to different, perhaps even opposing data privacy laws. While the United States provides criminal investigators and regulators a broad wingspan with respect to privacy and data protection, other nations have a narrow range. The European Union led the pack in adopting privacy and data protection restrictions. Now, many other countries, such as China, have followed suit.
In the case of an international dispute, the question then arises how, these differing E-Discovery related laws will apply. And, which jurisdiction shall prevail. This webinar will highlight some of the challenges present in this context, and will also offer practical solutions toward conflict resolution.
