EU legislation would criminalise whistleblowers

As expected, EU whistleblowers could soon get a similar level of protection afforded to Obamastan whistleblowers.

The stated aim of the Trade Secrets Protection Act, which was debated by the European Parliament yesterday, is to protect EU firms from corporate espionage by foreign rivals.

:joy:

As an aside, the solution to the EU legislation is simple: exit the EU.
