Re: GDPR violation?

If only there were some sort of regulation of these rapacious corporations here in America!

Both the State of California and the United States Congress are working on legislation that implements GDPR-like privacy protections for U.S. citizens. The current thinking is that the tough California legislation (which passed and will go into effect in 2020) will be superseded by toothless federal legislation that is bought and paid for by your friendly, neighborhood Google and Facebook.
