In my original post a month ago concerning Ajit Paim I indicated how he would make our lives on the internet miserable.
However, his first move is more worrying than I imagined. Paim froze the roll out of rules set to take effect the first week of March that would increase our personal data protection that is collected by ISPs.
Basically at this point, the company is favored over the individual. Any data that an ISP collects on you (and it is a LOT more than any website does including sensitive personal data) is no longer required to be protected by the ISP. This means that if they are hacked and your Social Security # is lost due to the breach, it is not their problem or their responsibility to even notify you. In addition, you cannot opt out of this data collection, which by the way the ISP makes money off of by creating specific advertisements based on that data to sell and push directly to you.
So now we have a company/service, that is already gouging the US population with over pricing, that collects sensitive data from you without your permissions, now has protection from fault if they lose your personal data in an attack.
Cooperation ≠ People...
