- The End of Online Privacy?
- The rules that protect your web browsing history could soon vanish. The House and Senate have approved a resolution that removes landmark privacy rules drafted by the FCC in 2016. If the president signs the legislation, it will take effect later this year. Once it does, your internet service provider will no longer need your permission to sell information about what websites you visit, the apps you use or where you use them. The issue largely falls along party lines, with Republicans saying the deregulation is important to let ISPs participate more freely in the market and save customers money. Opponents say it's a dangerous step backwards in the fight for online privacy. Guests include Craig Aaron, president and CEO of Free Press, Kyle Daly, Bloomberg BNA senior reporter on tech and telecom policy and Mark Jamison, visiting fellow with AEI's Center for Internet, Communication, and Technology.
