Some in the LTSC are very familiar with the European Union’s policies on privacy, security, data ownership and the rights of individuals in digital spaces. The hope in this approach is that the xAPI specification community has more or less held a high level of amity before, as the spec was being developed. The EU may not be interested in xAPI as one document that reflects the current specification because of its ambiguities around security, privacy.
