To the Secretary:
Enclosed for use in your international Internet consumer protection initiative is a copy of my article, "Of Elephants, Mice, and Privacy: International Choice fo Law and the Internet" which was recently published in The International Lawyer.
I believe people on you staff are aware of the book that I wrote with Robert Litan, published this fall by Brookings. The book is entitled "None of Your Business: World Data Flows, Electronic Commerce, and the European Privacy Directive." Chapters 4 and 9 are especially relevant to your inquiry. If you wish to receive a copy, please contact Brookings.
My web site contains quite a number of my other writings in the general area. You can see these at www.osu.edu/units/law/swire.htm.
Best of luck in your endeavors on these important issues.
