Our Country Moves Closer to a Federal Privacy Law, and I Move Closer to Losing My Mind


Gizmodo reported:

After years of fizzled talks and stalled negotiations on a federal data privacy bill, House and Senate committee leaders finally set aside enough of their differences to release a draft of a new bipartisan tech privacy bill this past Friday.

The legislation, called the “American Data Privacy and Protection Act,” is being spearheaded by House Energy and Commerce Chair Frank Pallone (D-N.J.), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) and Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee.

And at least from a brief reading of the 10-pager outlining the bill’s basics, it looks pretty good! Upon a deeper reading though, the thing is … well, it’s not pretty good, or even remotely good. It carves out exemptions for bad bosses and law enforcement officials, while letting data brokers continue buying and selling vast amounts of our personal data with impunity.

  1. I simply needed to thank you very much once again. I’m not certain the things I would’ve created without the actual techniques provided by you over my question. It was actually a frightening scenario for me, but witnessing the very specialised avenue you solved it made me to jump for happiness. I am grateful for the advice and even expect you know what an amazing job you’re accomplishing training the mediocre ones all through your web site. Probably you have never encountered all of us.

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I actually suppose this web site wants much more consideration. I抣l in all probability be once more to learn way more, thanks for that info.

  3. An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write more on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic but generally individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
