Washington Internet Daily – “Data Privacy, Security Drive Tech Lobbying Spending Increase”
NetChoice stepped up its lobbying spending in Q1 2014 over Q1 2013. Its $111,013 is nearly 10 times the $10,423 it spent in Q1 2013. “The Internet community is fully awake to the risk that new laws bring the unintended consequence of squelching innovation and competition,” Szabo told us. NetChoice decided to “ramp up our work against a new Internet sales tax law that would impose huge compliance burdens and audit risks on any business going online to reach new customers,” he said.
