FTC Commissioner Argues Against Consent-Based Privacy Rules
We almost never mention speeches by politicians or regulators, for the excellent reason that what they do so often differs from what they say. But I’ll still call out this speech by FTC Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter, because she states clearly that consent-based privacy rules have failed and what’s needed are legal limits on how much data companies can collect. I agree, and so do a growing number of people in Washington. Fundamental change in the advertising industry could result.
