IAB Europe Press Statement on Brave Web Statement
Claims by Johnny Ryan of Brave that IAB Europe refused to respond to the DPC related to a complaint made by him are false and defamatory.
IAB Europe is in a cordial and continuous dialogue with the DPC on a number of different matters and is not refusing to respond to questions received from the DPC. The DPC has confirmed to IAB Europe today that it has not stated that IAB Europe refused to respond to its queries.
It is in the commercial interests of Brave Software to undermine efforts by its competitors in the online advertising space to comply with data protection law so that it can be perceived as a credible alternative with its publisher funding and advertising products.
