@Malcom, you raised very important points. My thoughts are that these laws
seem to provide a framework through which NTSA can regulate the industry
and address some of the issues that have been raised over time. Like
assisted crime, data protection, rogue driving etc. But the question is,
does it provide the right frameworks.
Being an information service, how will this impact in other industries,
given that there’s a likelihood of replication?
