house Bill H.R. 4651

Bringing Tech Companies and Law Enforcement Together to Balance Privacy and Security

Argument in favor

Letting a commission of experts from tech companies, law enforcement, and other stakeholders develop policies balancing privacy and security concerns, then pass their recommendations to Congress is a good way to start a dialogue on these issues.

Recommendations should be made by people who understand the industry.

The need for privacy and the need for security are both important, and yet seemingly at odds with each other. Getting representatives for both issues to work together is a good idea. I especially appreciate the bipartisan approach.

Congress aren't experts in technologies and the private sector. We need people who know what they're talking about to work together with congress

Argument opposed

Congress should come up with their own solution to the encryption debate rather than forming a commission for law enforcement and the private sector to try to strike a balance between privacy and security when it comes to encrypted technologies.

End to end encryption is vital in protecting our fourth amendment right in the digital age

THE ONLY THING WE NEED TO BALANCE PRIVACY AND SECURITY IS FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO STICK TO FOLLOWING THE U.S. CONSTITUTION!

    This is not needed. There's no need for debate. What the FBI asks for regarding to Apple is unconstitutional.

    The only way I can see this is by some mutual agreement. If the Tech companies say no, that's the answer. At this point, the Feds needs to hire some good code crackers from private companies.

    The commission would be selected by and answer to congress. They would be under pressure to yield to congressional demands. And congress could use the "recommendations" of the commission to justify whatever outcome congress sees fit.

    Countable member Loraki stated it splendidly: "THE ONLY THING WE NEED TO BALANCE PRIVACY AND SECURITY IS FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO STICK TO FOLLOWING THE U.S. CONSTITUTION!" I would only add: "AND FOLLOW BIBLICAL MORAL PRINCIPLES. (The very same ones that we used to follow. The very same ones that made our country a shining international example of God's grace to begin with).

    The Gornment has no right to force companies into helping them, if the bill said specifically promote instead, perhaps my vote would've been different

    Our rights under the Fourth Amendment still apply to technology. The private sector should not be compelled to compromise the privacy of users, nor should they provide a service that could allow law enforcement to effectively bypass the process of obtaining a warrant.

    Encryption should be de facto standard. No one should have access to my communications. Repeal the PATRIOT act please.

    We need less government overreach. Giving more voice to the private sector's privacy concerns should help with this issue.

    This will most likely end up being another waste of time and money. I'm all for encryption. The government doesn't have the right to see my information or anyone else's.

    Firstly, we are losing privacy. And two, congress actually needs to do something solid.

    Privacy is the number one concern. End to end encryption is a right; people can do with their data what they like. No company should be forced to destroy all privacy for all people to allegedly stop terrorism.
