EUGeneral Data Protection Regulation Discussion BroadcastThe Assistant European Data Protection Supervisor and the Rapporteur for the Data Protection Regulation have discussed the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). They noted that the timeline that had been set for the end of 2015 was nearing, but there was optimism that there could be political agreement in this time. There are still some core compromises needed: for example, in relation to the requirement for a mandatory data protection officer, the question of consent and other grounds for processing data (in particular legitimate interests for processing), but the position is moving toward a consensus. All parties foresee that the implementation period will be two years once the regulation is finalised.EU Agency for Fundamental Rights Report on SurveillanceThe EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has published its report focussing on the legal framework governing surveillance by intelligence powers.

The ordinance route was justified on grounds that the amendments were urgent to send the right message about Indian government’s intentions of making the necessary legal reforms for ease of doing business in India. Despite good intentions, an unintended result followed. Immediately following the promulgation of the ordinance, Indian courts have been dealing with contentions on whether or not the amended provisions apply to proceeding pending before them or new court proceedings initiated in old arbitrations. There is simply no guidance in the provisions of the amending legislation itself. The Bill was tabled in the … [Read more...] about SC Decision in BCCI vs. Kochi Cricket: Much Ado About Nothing?
NEW DELHI: India captain Virat Kohli on Saturday dismissed the school of thought that giving too much time to endorsements can be distracting for a cricketer. Kohli endorses a host of brands and some are even his own ventures. "I was 25-26 when I got associated with Wrogn (his own clothing brand). Even then people thought I am entering into business at 25, I am too young for it," said Kohli at a promotion event. "As a professional sportsman there is not a set age to do business because you have to establish a business whenever you start it. It is a cliche that you should do business only after a specific age. I don't believe that," said the 30-year-old. Kohli said it is important for a player to balance his cricketing and commercial interests. "I don't believe that you can't do endorsement while playing. I don't believe in all of that. If you have limited time, you should know how to establish (your product) in a limited period of time," the star batsman added. Kohli has a … [Read more...] about Balancing cricket and endorsements easily doable: Virat Kohli

The players had just arrived by bus at the Masjid Al Noor mosque for Friday afternoon prayers when they heard gunshots. If they had arrived a few minutes earlier they would have been inside the mosque, where at least 30 people were killed by a gunman with an automatic rifle. Another nearby mosque in Christchurch was also attacked, and overall 49 people were killed and dozens seriously injured. When the bus carrying some players and coaching staff arrived at the mosque, they heard but did not see the shootings, said Mohammad Isam, a journalist travelling with the Bangladesh team.

The bench comprising Justice AK Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan allowed the appeals writ petition filed by the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Associations and Anurag Thakur, setting aside the Himachal Pradesh High Court order that had refused to quash the FIR. The bench observed that the elements of criminal intent or criminal acts are lacking in this case. “State of Himachal did not have any cricket ground, much less State of art cricket ground. It is, for this reason, that the land was given on lease for the purpose of constructing the cricket … [Read more...] about Dharamshala Cricket Stadium ‘Scam’: SC Quashes FIR Against BJP MP Anurag Thakur [Read Judgment]
