Opponents said the bill is too vague. Carl Szabo of the tech lobby NetChoice said he took issue with a line in the bill requiring parental consent in releasing data from minors. Szabo is also a professor at George Washington University.
“One of the old adages is ‘on the internet, no one knows you’re a dog’,” Szabo said. “So the ability for a platform to identify whether the user is over 18 or a minor is essentially impossible.”
