07 Jul Tech Companies Wanting to Sell Data Oppose California Privacy Bill
One of the Obama-era rules that President Donald Trump Quickly scrapped include online privacy protection for consumers.
In response, California introduces a legislation protection user privacy. A move that led tech lobbyists and Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) to fight against the bill.
The Obama legislation that the Trump administration took out was meant to restrict how ISP’s sell or disseminate their customers data such as location info and browsing histories.
Many other states are pushing forward legislation to protect their constituents’ privacy after the repeal of the federal regulations. At present, at least 20 states are introducing internet privacy rules or are working on the legislation.
