Laws Restricting Drones, Gun-Owner and Student Data on the Move
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.July 2, 2013
The spate of state privacy laws—proposed and passed—continues in Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Oregon. The Privacy Tracker reports on Louisiana’s new law to protect the identities of concealed-weapons permit holders, paralleling a number of other states in response to a map indicating the homes of gun owners published in New York last year. Massachusetts lawmakers are considering a bill that would protect student data in the cloud from third-parties as it mulls participation in a Gates Foundation pilot program that aims to help schools simplify computer systems. And New Jersey and Oregon have seen movement on drone bills—with Oregon’s on its way to passage.
