Spanish Big Brother Awards: The Spanish Big Brother Awards, which are handed on a yearly basis to persons, businesses and government bodies that have stood out for violating privacy rights, will be held on 24 October 2003 in Pamplona. The Spanish version of the Big Brother Awards takes place under the auspices of the CPSR (Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility), an organisation that arose in opposition to former US president Ronald Reagan's "star wars" defence programme and has been active in the struggle for individuals' privacy rights. The first Spanish Big Brother Awards, held on 5 October 2002 in Madrid, saw awards given to the Danish Presidency of the EU (in the Public Sector category), Deutsche Bank (in the Private Sector category), Microsoft Passport (for the Intrusive Technologies category), the SGAE (Spanish General Authors Society) in a votation by the public, and the Stop 1984 campaign (the Mariana Pineda award) for its activities in defence of cyber rights).
