The US Congress is going to allow the sale data of Internet users
WASHINGTON, Mar 29 — RIA Novosti, Alexei Bogdanovsky. The house of representatives of the U.S. Congress on Tuesday adopted 215 votes against 205 the decision to abolish the rules of the Federal communications Commission, which under the previous President Barack Obama banned the Internet providers sell user data to third parties, according to the results of the vote.
The Senate has already endorsed a similar decision earlier. As expected, President Donald trump will sign the bill, and it will take effect.
The rules prohibited providers, including the largest telecommunications firms in the U.S., to sell data about users. The administration of the tramp declares that it is unfair to impose restrictions only against providers, unlike other companies operating in the Internet, such as Google and Facebook.
