Controversial internet reforms are potentially coming to Australia.

Jodie Sangster is the CEO of the Association for Data-driven Marketing and Advertising. She is calling for Australia to follow in the footsteps of America by enacting a controversial internet reform that would see ISP’s selling customers’ browsing history without their knowledge.

The US passed legislation last week preventing ISP’s from needing to seek customer permission before accessing and selling off their customer’s internet history data.

Jodie has called to follow behind America to stop Australia lagging in innovation in the digital economy and promoting a data driven economy. However, this stands in contrast to Europe who has only strengthened its digital privacy policies.

A very interesting read and something to keep in mind from a personal privacy perspective.
