New Bill Promises an End To Our Privacy Nightmare, Jail Time To CEOs Who Lie

Here is a quote from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden:

“Mark Zuckerberg won’t take Americans’ privacy seriously unless he feels personal consequences. Under my bill he’d face jail time for lying to the government.”

If the bill passes, Zuckerberg and many other senior executives will become responsible for their actions or, in some cases, for their lack of action.

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has unveiled updated privacy legislation he says will finally bring accountability to corporations that play fast and loose with your private data. Dubbed the Mind Your Own Business Act, the bill promises consumers the ability to opt out of data collection and sale with a single click. It also demands that corporations be transparent as to how consumer data is collected, used, and who it’s sold to, while imposing harsh fines and prison sentences upon corporations and executives that misuse consumer data and lie about it.
