Taubman Project



The objective of this research project is to inform the development of a future United States law on consumer privacy, drawing upon three recent privacy laws and regulations:

  • Europe’s GDPR
  • The Federal Communication Commission’s Broadband Privacy Order
  • California’s CCPA

We believe that development of future laws or regulations should be grounded in:

  • an understanding of what personal information companies collect, how they use it, and with whom they share it,
  • an appreciation for the different paths that GDPR, the FCC Broadband Privacy Order and CCPA have taken, and
  • a recognition of the strengths and weaknesses of each of these laws and regulations.
