SF Gate – Wyoming committee considers privacy issues
Carl Szabo, policy counsel for NetChoice in Washington, D.C., said he plans express concerns about the proposal at Friday’s committee meeting.
“My concerns first and foremost, are how anti-privacy the bill is,” Szabo said Monday. “Electronic communications have become the new phone. We send instant messages, we send emails, the same way we used to pick up the phone and have a conversation.”
Szabo said modern technology creates a permanent record of such private conversations. “Even if I had wished to have all my emails purged, have all my photographs deleted, that privacy choice that I made in life does not extend when I die,” he said, adding he also believes the measure would go against federal law.
