DuraSpace is pursuing an international partnership program to increase the geographic regions and languages where DuraCloud, an open source cloud storage and content preservation software, can be provided as a service and supported. In doing so, questions about information transfer, privacy, and legal jurisdiction of the partnership and preservation activities arose. It prompted legal research and consultation by DuraSpace related to international privacy legislation, namely the Canadian Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in relation to the U.S. Patriot Act and Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties (MLATs). This presentation will share the research and consultation outcomes as well as gauge participant’s experiences and additional areas of interest.
