California privacy law may make user data more vulnerable?

a. “Microsoft embraces California data privacy law”

b. “Microsoft .. sells personal information that it receives.”

c. a !== b

This CCPA sounds a lot like the CAN-SPAM Act, as in it does nothing for user privacy and legitimates companys amalgamating and selling on your 'private' information.

> Since the law requires businesses to turn over any individual’s personal information upon request, businesses will have to store that data in a way that is connected to each unique individual. Data that previously was stored anonymously or de-identified would be directly attached to you under CCPA,
