The Electronic Frontier Foundation revealed its three top priorities that should be included in proposed data privacy legislation. The first priority is to avoid federal preemption legislation that overrides stronger state privacy laws. The second priority states legislation should empower consumers to file their own lawsuits against companies that violate their privacy rights. The remaining top priority includes incorporating nondiscrimination rules to avoid pay-for-privacy schemes — consumers who choose more private options should receive the same goods, prices and quality as those who do not opt in to privacy options. In addition to the top three priorities, EFF would like data privacy legislation to include the right to opt-in consent, the right to know, and the right to data portability. Conversely, EFF recommends against expanding the scope or penalties of computer crime laws, citing the existing laws are too broad.
