Other than Facebook Amazon shouldn't be trusted either

Amazon Slams California Privacy Law

Amazon is no big fan of the EU approach to privacy protection, or California's new privacy law.

The company made that clear in testimony for a Senate Commerce Committee hearing Wednesday (Sept. 26) with edge providers and ISPS on data privacy protection.

Amazon, AT&T, Google push Congress to pass online privacy bill to preempt stronger California law

Quote:
Major companies including Amazon, AT&T, Apple and Google are lobbying Congress to craft legislation that would preempt a first-of-its-kind California privacy law that grants sweeping online protections to consumers.

Senior executives from these companies, plus Twitter and Charter Communications, offered a show of industry support for a federal privacy bill with weaker consumer protections during a Senate hearing Wednesday.........

Big L.A. Times story about how Amazon throws cheap knockoffs into the same bin as the genuine stuff. One guy who made a bulletproof USB cable kept getting reviews like, "Piece of junk; broke immediately," so he checked around. They were getting poorly made imitations with slightly changed or fake logos.

Apparently there's no way to tell what you'll get.
