Today, as part of its filings with the Federal Trade Commission, NetChoice released a white paper outlining identifying the myriad of privacy laws and actions taken against technology businesses.
This report lists the more than 100 US privacy laws governing tech and more than 75 general privacy cases and 65 data security cases brought against tech by the FTC since 2002.
“Some in Congress think the tech industry is the “wild west.” This is completely untrue. The industry is regulated by over 100 different laws and 75 enforcers,” said Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel for NetChoice.
“Tech regulation is substantial with over eleven federal agencies providing oversight and more than $100 million reaped in privacy fines.”

“Sen. Hawley’s bill undermines small online businesses trying to compete with large incumbents by preventing them from making the most from their smaller user base.The bill most helps large businesses with trusted names while kneecapping future competitors.”
Washington, D.C. – Today, NetChoice filed comments with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (“NTIA”) request for comments on Request for Comments on Developing the Administration’s Approach to Consumer Privacy.
“We are seeing a fracturing of the internet driven by states introducing disparate privacy bills.” said Carl Szabo, Vice President of NetChoice. “The time has come for establishment of a nationwide standard for privacy online.”
“Americans should ask for a better privacy approach than what Europe and California concocted. Americans deserve a privacy law that doesn’t remove services and stymie innovation.” continued Szabo. “Federal privacy legislation should allow for industry safe-harbors similar to those in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.”
