For many years, @DanaAir, a domestic airline operator in Nigeria, raised millions of naira through inflight donations to Sri Sai Vandana Foundation, an illegal organisation that was not registered until Oct 2018 after #TheICIR started its investigations into the airline’s charity
ABOUT halfway through the Lagos-Abuja @DanaAir flight, after serving snacks and beverage, a plea comes for passengers to donate to charity & a member of the cabin crew thereafter goes through the aisle, handing down envelopes to passengers that indicate interest

#Consumerprotection
This thread explores #consumerprotection aspects in the new broadcasting licensing regime. When in full force it will have hallmarks of what is happening else where in the region. Currently, all broadcasting are in advanced stages of signing agreements
There are three fundamental reasons why we regulate:
1. For effective and robust competition (avoid market failure)
2. Protect #consumers (ensure #consumer interests are protected)
3. Ensure widespread access to networks and services (preventing anti-competitive practices
#Consumerprotection in the new PUBLIC SERVICE PROVIDER LICENCE has a pricing condition requiring the Licensee (broadcaster) to within fourteen (14) days after signing the Licence Agreement, to provide @UCC_Official with a copy of its charges for all licensed services.

(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.

Just a reminder: the European Parliament has so far commissioned from experts dozens of impact assessments or studies on #Brexit in 14 broad fields. They don't necessarily constitute the EP's official position but are all free & available here: europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/… Thread 1/6
They include studies on the areas in which the European Parliament has set red lines for its approval of any Article 50 deal, such as #citizensrights europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… & the effect of #Brexit on the #peaceprocess in Northern Ireland europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 2/6
The studies on #Brexit also cover other critical topics such as the internal market and #consumerprotection europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… and #financialservices europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 3/6
