“Divergent State Privacy Laws Show Need For Federal Solution”

Attorneys with the Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld law firm write in Law360 that without a national, uniform data privacy standard, a “complex web of laws” will “pose significant challenges to businesses with multistate and national footprints.”

They walk through the different approaches taken by states like California, Nevada, New York, and others that use different revenue thresholds, different opt out processes, and different options for legal redress. A patchwork of laws will “plague the courts with difficult venue and choice of law problems as enterprising lawyers exploit the vagaries of these new statutes” since it is impossible to “chop up the Internet into 50 separate data privacy territories.”

A federal law, they say, would “offer much-needed clarity and uniformity.”
