Re: tracker tax

If the tax per tracker is just a percentage, which is how taxes usually work, companies will still track. As long as they make money from any instance, they don't care. Its anyway a miniscule margin gigantic volume business, making the margin even tinier will not change that much.

This level of tracking should simply be banned. No one would accept that it's OK that someone follows you in real life every step/drive that you take, what shops and offices you visit, not only recording what you buy but what you browsed and how long you looked at what... Its stalking, and people do not object only because they are mostly unaware of the level of stalking
