Senate Democrats release robust federal privacy bill to regulate tech company business practices

"“This legislation represents a sea change, particularly in the way federal law thinks about privacy harm,” said University of Washington law professor Ryan Calo in a statement. “As the bill makes abundantly clear, violating the privacy rights and expectations of consumers is harmful in and of itself, a harm that must be redressed by regulators and courts.”

Calo advised Cantwell’s team during the policymaking process."
