In the last few years, the right to privacy debate in the United States has increased in pace and volume. One issue at the center of this long debate is how best to implement the right privacy tools in a manner that does not disrupt business and technological innovation.  The current criticisms fail to appreciate that the next technological paradigm is completely dependent on both the quality and quantity of data.
