I'm hopeful that the US will adopt privacy legislation like the EU and Canada have, but it has to be done right.
> Any federal privacy bill must have a private right of action: if a company breaks the law and infringes on our privacy rights, it’s not enough to put a government agency in charge of enforcing the law. Users should have the right to sue the companies, and it should be impossible to sign away those rights in a terms-of-service agreement.

@morganizeit unfortunately the only time they adopt these kinds of rules is when they're forced to because they can't do business with places like the eu without them.
