Automatic Listening Exploitation Act of 2019

The Automatic Listening Exploitation Act would fine a company up to $40,000 for each recording made without a user’s permission.

If the bill gets approval it will be for US, do you know of any similar efforts in any other country?

Quite nice in theory! Maybe even exaggerated. But I agree with the article in the sense that if there are exceptions of service improvement then it will all be classified as that. I wonder if they could use that to prosecute the government for accessing that.
