Quote of the Day - Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men. - Ann Rand

California's Privacy Law Struck Down

As MIPTC reported to you before, California can't seem to protect your privacy.  What appeared to be a split-the-baby decision in the Ninth Circuit was returned to Judge England for further proceedings to see if there was any portion of California's Financial Information Privacy Act that remained valid. 

It wasn't saved.  The bankers are "pleased," and Bill Lockyer is considering another appeal, although I wouldn't hold out much hope for success given the last opinion

Bankers can now sell your private information to their "affiliates" (companies owned by banks but not in the banking business), but it appears they must get your permission first.

It's up to you whether you check that little box.
