The Center for Democracy & Technology has proposed a federal privacy law, which is now open for discussion. In a blog post, the CDT's Michelle Richardson, Nuala O'Connor, CIPP/G, CIPP/US, Natasha Duarte, and Joseph Jerome, CIPP/US, outlined the thinking behind their proposal. "We hope this draft will inspire feedback and collaboration from all stakeholders and serve as a resource for decision makers who seek to rebalance our privacy ecosystem in favor of users." In a thread on Twitter, Jerome wrote, "Our legislative proposal is an effort to inject new ideas into the debate, but we're trying to shift the burden of responsibility for protecting data away from individuals and onto companies." Editor's Note: Jerome recently wrote about the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's consent decrees for Privacy Perspectives.
