New article on the roles of data controller and data processor

An alternative model for data protection law:  changing the roles of controller and processor.

In general, data protection should be real, but today it is often a fiction. The fiction is that the data controller is in control and is able to meet the obligations set out in the law. According to the data protection Directive (95/46 EC) and undoubtedly also the future EU Regulation, anybody from an individual physical person to a large multinational corporation can be a controller. This article contains a proposal for changing the roles of data controller and data processor.  It is argued that data responsibility should be linked to the actual processing of the personal data.
