In an op-ed for The Mercury News, Purism CEO Todd Weaver and Brave CEO Brendan Eich write about their organizations being part of a new generation of tech companies that "support strong privacy protections, not just token 'regulation' that doesn’t really protect consumers."

"Big tech’s cries that CCPA’s privacy protections will stifle innovation are false," they write, adding that the EU General Data Protection Regulation brought similar fears that turned into opportunity. "We can rise to the occasion. Making sure that our customers’ and families’ privacy rights are protected isn’t merely doable. It is imperative." (Registration may be required to access this story.)
