Harris Speaks on Balancing Privacy and Innovation
MOBILE PRIVACY—U.S.April 11, 2013
During a conference on Wednesday for app developers and others in the mobile arena, California Attorney General Kamala Harris highlighted the importance of balancing privacy protections with innovation, reports PCWorld. “We’re here to encourage that innovation and to work together to figure out how we can balance the litigation interests at play when we talk about the need for the consumer to have information and the right that consumers should have to determine what they want to give up for what they get,” Harris said. Some attendees were unsure whether Harris’ remarks, and similar comments from the FTC, signaled excitement in their work or a readiness to take legal action against it.
