Consumers and Businesses “Will Pay a Price” For State-by-State Data Regulations

A patchwork of state data privacy laws give consumers a “false sense of security” and force businesses to “pay a steep price,” the president of the Internet Association said in a New York Times op-ed.

Michael Beckerman said a consumer who lives in one state, orders an item from a business in another state, which manufactures its products in a third state “could have her data regulated by three separate laws, or by no applicable law.” This will create not just “consumer confusion,” but will “undoubtedly lead to inconsistent treatment of data” and “a challenging environment for businesses to navigate and drive up costs for legal compliance.”

To alleviate these issues with state-by-state laws, Beckerman advocates for a “national privacy law.”
