Techdirt: Yes, Privacy Is Important, But California’s New Privacy Bill Is An Unmitigated Disaster In The Making

Techdirt: Yes, Privacy Is Important, But California’s New Privacy Bill Is An Unmitigated Disaster In The Making. “We’ve talked a little about the rush job to pass a California privacy bill — the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) — and a little about how California’s silly ballot initiatives effort forced this mad dash. But a few people have asked us about the law itself and whether or not it’s any good. Indeed, some people have assumed that so many lobbyists freaking out about the bill is actually a good sign. But, that is not the case. The bill is a disaster, and it’s unclear if the fixes that are expected over the next year and a half will be able to do much to improve it.”
