The protection of personal information is an issue that is addressed by legislation in most states. Yet, the degree of protection often differs from country to country. This chapter discusses the current trends in the development of personal information protection laws, by comparing and contrasting the approaches taken by the EU and the United States. It also explores how these differences have been overcome through cooperation in order to promote trade and economic exchange between the two actors. Finally, the chapter analyses laws recently enacted in Korea - a country that has already advanced into the information age and, thus, has encountered various types of issues relating to the protection of personal information. In light of this analysis, the chapter considers the opportunities and challenges for cooperation on personal data protection between the EU and Korea.
