    Congratulations, you're less accomplished than a university dropout nazi mostly famous for being a solid 7/10.

    This was an interesting case. They were rushing to get this bill through the legislature, because if they didn't, a much harsher one was going to go on the november ballot and have a chance of passing.

    I kinda like this approach.
    Should have left the public one on the ballot. The california public just got fucked by google.
    Eh, the major things got in. Its a damn sight better than what we had before...
    So when is it becoming a technological dead zone?
    It won't. It'll spawn 1000 startups offering compliance services, and the big boys will offer it too. IT budgets will get spent. Compliance is generally when budgets that "Definitely aren't there" magically appear

    I mean, you have to admire Facebook's brazen candor in a way.

    "People should be in control of their information online and companies should be held to high standards in explaining what data they have and how they use it, especially when they sell data," said Will Castleberry, Facebook's vice president of state and local public policy, who emphasized that the company doesn't sell user data. "In that spirit, while not perfect, we support AB375 and look forward to working with policymakers on an approach that protects consumers and promotes responsible innovation."
    Well as long as it's californian you'll support it but shit on others doing it, nbs.
    The difference is penalties and a process that can force the companies to spend money (a shitload) on things that may more or less be frivolous until such time something happens in some EU court. I know plenty of people who are doing ROI on Europe and potential risk unless a lot of expense is output (and time from marketable features).

    Iím not saying itís right, but it is what it is.

    It's a weak bit of legislation that will be quietly amended and regulated into irrelevance within a couple of years. Exactly what Google and Facebook wanted. It's a shocking display of legislative corruption and you should all be infuriated.

    It’s not a bad thing, but the implementation is anti industry. That may or may not be a bad thing in your eyes, but it is what it is. Unlike Brexit, we’re actually not that retarded here as to throw the baby out with the bath water by decimating our own economy.

    It satisfied the people bringing the original ballot initiative. If anything blame them. Nothing is stopping them from running their bill in the future, or, in California, concerned citizens taking charge of the situation and amending it or getting it changed in the future, so we don’t have to be quite so melodramatic or fatalistic about legislation.

    Meaning what, exactly?

    That I'm not engaged in Revolution (tm) to overthrow our current system of Representative Federal Republic and it's regulated mixed economy in order to replace it with........something else tbd?

    You're right, I'm not. That does not mean I think our system is perfect, or that I cannot see faults and failures of our system, far from it.

    What is your expectation exactly Keck? Want me to go throw some pissbags on a CEO whilst yelling workers of the world unite?
    No you sit there hand wringing about bad stuff and saying something must be done (tm), but completely fail to acknowledge the environmental failings which lead to it in the first place. The fact you think your mixed economy isn't worth replacing is obscene, the only mixed part of your economy is government spending keeping your military industrial complex ticking over while you have sky high levels of child poverty and an inescapable poverty cycle for about a fifth of your population.
    You realize we do have a massive welfare machine? It's just structured exclusively for the elderly.

    Coincidentally this is the same voting bloc that scoffs at any public investment

    Well, is it or isn’t it? I didn’t nevessarily say it was a bad thing. Regulation is always pretty much anti-industry, sort of by definition.

    Regulation is frequently anti-competition, which isn't quite the same thing.

    GDPR compliance comes with cost to any business complying, as will the California law.

    Yes, boo hoo how will those poor companies survive with a tiny bit less profit for the overall good. Poor souls, it means all industry will die off and nothing will happen anymore.

    And if it does not have that effect, it means the bill is useless and will be ignored in no time flat.

    So good job i guess?

    In 2017, Southern supported the white identitarian group Defend Europe.

    She's a literal card carrying far right white supremacist, are you going to turn around and claim that Richard fucking Spencer isn't a nazi either?

    Anti-industry? Seriously? I thought it was about protecting consumer's privacy? If that's anti-industry, I'd like to see a lot more anti-industry legislation introduced quite frankly.

    Cali's GDPR is pretty weak, BTW. Now wonder Facebook/Google are so happy with it.
