"Meyerkord and Meyerkord, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation"

Both republican and democratic lawmakers approved the change to the regulations originally created during President Clinton's term. The revisions come at time when younger and younger children are becoming tech-savvy. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released its new proposed language, which includes a new broader definition of "personal information" and the requirement for companies to delete informational after it is used for its original purpose, limiting usage for marketing purposes. Those in opposition to possibly stricter regulations are concerned that new, more stringent regulations on business protocols for use of information may put a damper on the growing economy. Younger tech-savvy consumers are becoming a large sector of the private consuming market.
