"We need alternatives. We need governments around the world to invest in communities building technology that genuinely benefits them, rather than pursuing an agenda that is set by big tech." @timnitGebru theguardian.com/commentisfre… The time to fight for a better internet is now.

Der #DMA ist ein wichtiger Schritt hin zu einem faireren Internet. Jedoch ruft #CompDM zu verbesserten #Interoperabilitätsbestimmungen auf, sowie zu einem Verbot des Vorinstallierens von Default-Apps, um Nutzerinnen und Nutzern mehr Kontrolle über Ihre Geräte zu geben.

#CompDM urges MEPs to include a ban on pre-installed default apps which would give users more control over what is on their device, and asks for improved #interoperability provisions.

Today, Google can preinstall apps on Android devices and set as defaults their own services, which millions of people won’t bother changing. This is wrong and anti-competitive. Users should have the choice to select their own defaults while setting up their phones.

NEW: In our survey with @YouGov, 90% of Britons said they want stronger digital privacy. Repeat: 90%. But 20% aren't taking steps to protect their data. Why? Big Tech makes privacy far too complicated. protonmail.com/blog/uk-priva…

Big Tech & their lobbyists want people to think that a ban on surveillance advertising is the same as a ban on *all* advertising. But that's simply not the case. Surveillance advertising is just *one* way companies can advertise their services/products. 1/5

Congrats to the ICO, UK's data protection watchdog, for taking a stand for privacy. Unchecked facial surveillance technology is dangerous. We need to strengthen, not weaken, the laws that protect our privacy rights. @carolecadwalla
Well, this is fascinating. Bloomberg reporting ClearviewAI may face £17m fine from ICO for having potentially harvested UK citizens' faces without their consent. I can confirm, it did. This was the result of a Subject Access Request I sent last year. No maybe about it.
