Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 2014

March 26, 2014 - 3:45pm
Munich, Germany

Join EFF Senior Counsel David Sobel for a panel discussion on "Privacy Devices Legal Framework and other GNSS Legal Topics."  Low - cost jammers or so-called Personal Privacy Devices (PPDs) may be purchased via internet and by electronic payment. The easiest way to solve this threat would be the prohibition of PPDs. However, the legal situation is not clear: In some countries the use is prohibited by criminal law, in others no regulation at all exists. What is the right way to protect satellite navigation legally against the PPDs? This panel will cover the legal situation of ownership and use, as well as the prohibition of sale within Europe and worldwide. Other current topics and latest regulatory developments will also be adressed.

The panel will be chaired by Dr. Ingo Baumann,Partner, BHO Legal, Cologne, Germany and Dr. Oliver Heinrich,Partner, BHO Legal, Cologne, Germany.

In addition to Mr. Sobel, panel members will include Gerhard Berz, Focal Point for Navigation Infrastructure, Eurocontrol, Brussels, Belgium; Maria Buzdugan, Legal Officer, EU Satellite Navigation Financial Management Unit, Galileo Programme, European Commission, Brussels; and Thomas Weber, Spectrum Management, European Communications Office (ECO), Copenhagen, Denmark

The panel is part of a three day summit in Munich on satellite navigation. The summit goes from March 25-27.

Where: Residenz München, Residenzstraße 1, 80333 München, Germany
