Calif. Privacy Agency Signals Strength With Rules Proposal
Privacy & Data Security Chair Daniel M. Goldberg is quoted in the article, “Calif. Privacy Agency Signals Strength With Rules Proposal” published by Law360. The article discusses the California Privacy Protection Agency’s first draft of its regulations for the California Privacy Rights Act, a strengthened version of the state's Consumer Privacy Act set to take effect in January 2023. Daniel is quoted saying, "The regulations, as written, impose highly technical contractual and disclosure obligations that differ fundamentally from other privacy laws and will confuse businesses and consumers" and "I hope the CPPA will reduce many of these technical requirements in the next round."

Daniel concludes by saying, "The purpose of privacy laws like CPRA is to provide individuals with more information about and choice around how their information is being used" and "Where things go wrong is when there are a lot of technicalities and granularities that require businesses to make even more disclosures that may not necessarily help consumers."
