Inquiring minds want to know if preemption of state privacy laws was on the menu. #CCPA #NYPA
And if Right to Know isn’t the baseline of the discussion well that’s how you know that the surveillance capitalists are orchestrating a coup.
We’re already capitulating to industry by calling them data privacy acts instead of data rights acts. Privacy is a meaningless term. Of course privacy is dead. Data rights are alive.

Shows you have much the data privacy debate has shifted in the US when lobbyists can’t get their loopholes. #CCPA #TheGreatHack
“shows you *how much”…but seriously taken together with the reclassification law, Sacramento is doing the hard work of reigning in the excesses of Big Tech to protect consumers and workers where Washington DC isn’t.
Watching loophole lobbyists fail badly at statehouses is ratcheting pressure on Washington to act on preemption to grant us national data rights. But the devil will be in the details and the industry’s concessions for winning preemption. #DataRights cnbc.com/2019/09/10/bus…

Watched #TheGreatHack this weekend? Mindblown and/or outraged? California resident? Read about industry efforts to water down the landmark California Consumer Privacy Act #CCPA which is the first law in the USA to grant a Right to Know. Defend California law from loophole lobby!
Watched #TheGreatHack this weekend? Mindblown and/or outraged? New Yorker? Read about the bill in Albany that’s even bolder than California’s law. Then join me in writing to my local reps asking them to watch the film and pass the strongest bill possible. wired.com/story/new-york…
The next great hack is around #MoscowMitch who will surely block a landmark national privacy law. We must pass privacy laws in the statehouses first so that the industry pressures McConnell for preemption but voters will gain federalist leverage over the inevitable concessions.

(1) The #California Legislature is panicking tonight. They're currently presented with a watered-down #ConsumerProtection bill that would require tech companies to disclose the data collected on users, and delete the data collected on them at request. leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavC…
(2) This bill poses a huge threat to the profits of FAANG corporations, and it poses a threat to the companies who rely on this data to sell advertisers and political groups analytics on prospective consumers/voters.

Why is it such a problem, though?
(3) The #CCPA is actually quite milquetoast, as it's written now. But if they don't pass this bill, California has a much bigger problem coming for them in November: the will of the people.
