Amazon, Microsoft, and Uber are paying big money to kill a California privacy initiative - The Verge
The campaign to pass the California Consumer Privacy Act is almost wholly funded by Bay Area real estate developer Alastair Mactaggart. To date, Mactaggart has spent more than $3 million on the campaign. He argues that, in the personal data industry, “there’s so much money, and there are very powerful corporations that really have an immense interest in keeping business as usual going and having no regulations.” He started working on the initiative about four years ago, after hearing a Google engineer say the public would be frightened to learn how much data the company holds on consumers.
