Re: What could have been done differently?
<shnipp Data Protection stuff> At least theoretically, the US *is* supposed to have a comparable system. European privacy law makes it illegal to transfer personal data of any kind to a country without a comparable system - the US has a voluntary "Safe Haven" scheme that is supposed to enable US companies to be able to receive personal data from europe without the board of directors of the sending company being arrested.... Mind you, none of this takes into account the web; based in the US, Passport isn't subject to english law (but then, most american courts assume Internet==American law anyhow)
