Italian Privacy Institute Launched

Privacy advocates and legal experts have launched the Italian Institute for Privacy, says an ITnews.it report. Described as a "public policy think tank," the group will work to improve online privacy protection for Italian and European citizens by informing policy. Organizers say the need for such an institute became especially apparent after the release by the Italian Government of citizens' tax returns earlier this year. "This extreme action shows how vigilant we citizens must be in defense of our basic right to privacy," said institute spokesperson Luca Bolognini.
