Hidden Behind The Mask of Something Reasonable Is Loss of Privacy
Many of our laws created today are put into place by well-meaning legislators. The problem is they fail to take into account all the extended implications of what they are proposing. It is especially true with technology that they do not understand. Sometimes the legislation becomes so intricate and detailed that those signing off on them do not take the time to read them thoroughly. Often that is where we end up with laws that have unintended consequences that can negatively affect our rights and our privacy. That is the case with the EARN IT (Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies) Act Although it sounds reasonable, it will have severe security implications for the American populace by reducing access to encryption.
