House sends bill to Trump blocking online privacy regulation


Proponents of the bill, expected to be signed into law by President Donald Trump, explain that FCC regulations perpetuate fear, instead of provide privacy.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Republicans put profits over the privacy concerns of Americans.

Under the rules, internet providers would need to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children's information and web browsing history for advertising and marketing. They don't have to ask users' permission before tracking what sites they visit.

The US Congress has approved a Bill to revoke the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) broadband privacy regulations, which the Opposition fears, will strip consumers of critical privacy protections for their online data.

Providers would also have been required to notify customers about the types of information collected and shared. Beyond these newly-passed rules, the FCC also has the authority to take action should broadband providers - or other telecom companies - commit unjust or unreasonable business practices.

Republicans claim the FCC's rules confuse customers because they only cover Internet providers and not companies like Google and Facebook.

Pai added that the FCC would work with the Federal Trade Commission to ensure consumers' online privacy would be protected through a "consistent and comprehensive framework". ". I could not support [Tuesday's] vote to roll back privacy protections implemented by the Federal Communications Commission". "The vote broke along party lines, with Republicans voting yes, although 15 Republicans broke ranks to vote against the repeal with the Democrats".

"If S J Res 34 were presented to the president, his advisers would recommend that he sign the bill into law", the Trump regime said.

The legislation is now on its way to President Trump's desk. They have bet billions on content, including AT&T's pending acquisition of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN. In doing so, the door will be open for ISPs to do anything they like with the data of United States citizens.

"They no longer have the freedom to decide how to control their own information", said Rep. Mike Doyle, a Democrat from Pennsylvania.

Instead, the digital rights group Electronic Frontier Foundation suggests you might pay to use a virtual private network, which funnels your internet traffic through a secure connection that your provider can't see into. Technically, ISPs have always been able to do this, but the rules would've changed that in favor of consumer privacy. "I don't want anyone to take my information and sell it to someone and make a ton of money off of it just because they can get their mitts on it".
