Pretty good article, exposing the fact that tech companies now can be really hurt when they have to get rid of the learnings from the data collected without consent. This measure could be applied for past situations, as the Google one in 2019. I couldn't get how they watch the companies after the agreement, and it's hard to tell if they are really deleting all algorithms developed with the data.

This is a great article highlighting two key points. 1) when tech companies illegally obtain user data, they should have to forfeit the data as well as any algorithms or other tech derived from the stolen data. 2) the FTC needs to be expanded if it is to reasonably do it’s job now that so much consumer activity takes place online. A very well written and articulate examination of these two key areas.
