A new report from the Government Accountability Office -- relating the findings of investigators who went under cover to see how well the CRT disposal rule was followed and enforced -- concludes that the U.S. EPA is abdicating its responsibility for regulating e-waste. "Companies easily circumvent the CRT rule," the report concludes. "EPA's enforcement is lacking." The EPA disagreed with the GAO's recommendations for tightening enforcement and broadening regulations, saying it preferred the voluntary approach now in place.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
