Privacy-Focused Technology Companies Call for a Floor Vote on Antitrust Legislation

Spread Privacy: “On Tuesday September 13th, 13 privacy-focused technology companies representing more than 100 million users in the United States published a letter to U.S. Congressional Leadership imploring them to support the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICOA) and bring it to a floor vote as soon as possible. Incessant data collection and tech monopolies are inherently linked: the more data they collect and use to influence user decision making, the stronger their grip on industry becomes, leaving users feeling like they have no option but to accept a lack of privacy to use the Internet. However, users do have choices when it comes to the services they use, and they do not have to accept services that have made it their business to abuse user privacy. If the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICOA) becomes law, millions of Americans will have better access to Internet services with more privacy and less data-driven targeting and manipulation.”
