    Land o fruits and nuts, and more crime.
    California is turned inside out, upside down.
    Nothing suprising, just filth and slime.
    Take it from me.

    That's basically how Proposition 13 went down. Which has been, in many ways, a disaster for public services. And for the real estate market. But anyway, this would be cool. Except that it'd fork the programmatic ad industry ;)

    California lawmakers just passed one of the toughest data privacy bills in the country

    To really give anything any teeth, it should be opt-in which means, by default, a person is protected without having to do anything.

    So much for them "taking our privacy seriously". Another perfect example of the largest greediest companies on earth saying one thing and doing another.

    But what passed isn't the ballot measure. So maybe getting this bill passed was also part of the campaign. But still better than nothing, I guess.

    The California Consumer Privacy Act retains several of the initial provisions from
    the ballot measure, but there are a few key differences.

    The law requires the disclosure of only the 'category' of a third-party that receives
    personal information, instead of the identity of the third-party itself.

    Passing the privacy rules as "legislation" allows lawmakers to more easily change them, while
    a ballot measure would be more difficult to amend.

    How does CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) compare to GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation)

    It doesn't enact a set deadline for notifying consumers of a data breach, which the
    GDPR does.

    GDPR creates the possibility of enormous fines for companies found in violation, and calls
    for a dedicated authority to enforce the law in each EU member state.
    The law passed in California does neither of those things.

    Sounds like they rushed it through because a more restictive initiative on November’s ballot
    if passed would have given consumers even broader privacy protections.

    Anyone thinking Facebook and Google among others are "taking our privacy seriously"
    are living in Fantasyland.

    Right. Unfortunately in FBs case that's about 1/3 the worlds population in fantasy land. At the very least, the same deal for Google.

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    The law doesn't take affect for over a year?

    That would be very welcome!

    It's pretty clear now that many people, in fact, do not like being tracked and profiled. Most people, I suspect, could just not imagine what Google, Facebook and the programmatic ad industry overall have managed. But now, many are catching on. And they are not happy about it.

    If they meet GDPR, will that mean that they also meet CCPA?

    Perhaps not 100%, but they are almost there if they meet GDPR:
    ...found in the following article:

    California Consumer Privacy Act: What you need to know to be compliant
    California's new privacy law, AB 375, might not burden security as much as the GDPR, but details are subject to change.

    Thanks :)

    And huh ... "olfactory information"?

    But yeah, it seems OK :)

    I wonder what else the ballot initiative would have required.

    That's not very surprising, at all. "Money doesn't talk, it swears."
