Description

Across the country, states are looking at how to handle the privacy rights of their citizens regarding "big tech." Illinois, Virginia, California, and Florida have their versions. Ohio is trying to tackle this issue through HB 376. HB 376 is being described as a consumer protection bill, which will protect the selling of data by "big tech" companies and allow recourse for citizens when their data is sold against their direction. Advocates against the bill say that the bill protects "big tech" rather than the people it purports to protect. 

Featuring:

  • Hon. Brian Stewart, State Representative, Ohio
  • David Straite, Partner, DiCello Levitt Gutzler LLC
  • Carl M. Szabo, Vice President & General Counsel, Net Choice
  • Moderator: Hon. J. Philip Calabrese, Judge, United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio

Speakers
