US Politicians Want Big Tech to Share Data As Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Tron Developers Push for More Privacy

“US politicians are pushing a bipartisan bill that would affect major websites currently operating as digital townhalls. From Facebook to Telegram to WhatsApp, the new legislation would permit the government to access encrypted messages and content.

With the stated goal of trying to eliminate illegal activity on the internet, specifically child pornography, the Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies (EARN IT) Act could deal a hard blow to social media platforms that permit users to upload, comment on and share content.

The proposal would establish a 15-member commission that develops best practices for providers of interactive computer services to prevent online child exploitation…

…While the lawmakers stipulate that the scope of their inquiries is focused on protecting children and that the legislation should “consider the interest of providers of interactive computer services in providing customers with quality products, data security, and privacy,” internet watchdog Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) characterizes the bill as granting “sweeping powers” that could open the door to surveillance, stifle freedoms and systematize internet control by the US government.”
