Sensitive Data Management Application Opportunity
Sounds to me like this represents an opportunity for data management systems to step it up and formalize segregated management features.  Allowing companies to easily keep data traffic appropriately diverted, secured and viewable remotely only (the idea being the data never leaves the geographic locale in the first place), new ideas can be entertained on how to change methods of acquisition, analysis, and dispersal of information.  Playing with technologies like distributed computing and shared media across CDNs, programmers can experiment with a new model of data collection and sharing where laws are adhered to, but by re-defining the technical landscape it turns into a game of cate-and-mouse where authoring new laws becomes the cat trying to anticipate the mouse's next move (assuming there is a drive to keep the regulations growing tighter).  "Helpful information-sharing" shouldn't be a crime, and by no means are the laws at a point where the flow of data in one form or another is completely impossible, while keeping to the legal requirements of such regulations.

Global Standard
Do we need a global standard for which to adhere to? Meaning a standard that supersedes US and EU privacy regulations. Maybe there already is one that I am unaware of.

Voluntary Today - Mandatory Tomorrow
Great article. I agree that the present solution is "just don't share". Bear in mind though, that what is voluntary today will become mandatory tomorrow.
