    • Society & Culture

Most people assume that the battle lines are clearly drawn in the fight over our privacy. On one side, we have Big Tech and the Chamber of Commerce. On the other side, we have governmental actors, the plaintiff’s bar, and public interest organizations. Well, not so fast. In this challenging episode of the show, we talk to Joe Jerome, a veteran of the public interest world. And Joe is immediately put on the hot seat. While most public interest organizations (like the ACLU, EPIC, etc.) are what they purport to be, Jay argues that some are the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothes. Is it true that Big Tech has started financing these organizations and even infiltrated their boards? Is that why these organizations often argue for “compromise” privacy legislation that really is just a collection of Big Tech’s wish lists? Hear both sides of the argument in the newest episode of Non-Compliant.
