I have a real issue with statements like “If [the regulation] is anything like GDPR it’s really going to stifle innovation.”
GDPR protects people!
Innovation does not require privacy-invading tracking and complete freedom to do what you want with people’s data.
It’s like saying “seatbelts stifle innovation” or “food safety standards stifle innovation”.
True innovation would be making the new things while respecting privacy so that GDPR isn’t even an issue!!
