Companies such as Google and Facebook have been fighting proposed European Union privacy laws they say would slow innovation. Now, they are fighting in their backyard against California privacy bills that are almost identical.

I'm all for keeping my personal data out of the hands of predatory business. We should have some right to privacy.

You are welcome Angelika. You cannot currently send a star to Angelika because you have done so within the last day.

Thanks JL. Wonder just what innovations would be 'slowed', for what use, and for who/whom those innovations will profit? Governments for more wars (technological etc. improvements), power, control & money (more)?

Personal privacy is already invaded ( or available for a small price), probably with each key stroke we make on computers, cell phones and land lines. Wave HI everyone - I can see you, but you can't see me! Social Society/Cultures Snoops.

We can all thank our human social needs for War for Resources & Tribal survival, that have given us so very much in the ways to destroy, with carefully shared (need to know) knowledge, a world.

I'm all for privacy except when it concerns those who commit illegal acts against the law and the people of the land such as terrorism, child pornography et al. How do you track them without breaking the privacy laws sometimes? It's a sticky situation.

Privacy is important as well as tracking those involved in illegal activity.

Privacy is important to me, so I am all for it. Illegal activities can be tracked using correct, controlled legal procedures. Unsolicited Spam should be added to the list of illegal activities.
