OMD FWD w/c 9th July

Hello and welcome to your weekly FWD.

Litigation, regulation and precedent are the flavour of the week as European Members of Parliament voted to reject fast tracking the EU Copyright Directive, a major victory in maintaining an open internet. MEPs this week also call on the EU Commission to suspend the EU-US Privacy Shield as it fails to provide enough data protection for EU citizens. Someone’s looking out for us after all.

On a lighter note, FiveThirtyEight’s Soccer Power Index (SPI) is predicting the top teams to take home victory at the World Cup. Get even more technical by delving into the stats behind the best teams – they’re scatter charts that dreams are made of. Finally, remember that you can always check into OMD’s World Cup Social Intelligence Platform to check out what’s trending, tune into live conversations and stay on top of the chat.
