The Tutanota Blog has published an interesting article:
On April 3, 2017, President Trump signed a bill which was designed to cut out all of the FCCs protective laws for consumer internet use in the US. This action effectively opened the floodgates for advertisers and increased the reach of government procurement on data generated by private citizens.

- Internet Privacy Protects Parties in Legal Agreements
- Online Privacy is Safety
