At the TechFestNW event in Portland on Friday, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden called for legal reforms that embrace an understanding that the mere act of handing over digital data doesn't mean giving way a user's right to privacy.

"Some will still argue that by sharing data freely with Facebook, Google, Mint, Uber, Twitter, Fitbit or Instagram, Americans are choosing to make that data public. But that is simply not the case," the Democrat said, according to prepared remarks released by his office.

The Senator means well, but he is over-stepping.

As long as sites clearly disclose that they will shop the data, and how, they should be able to do so.

People should shoulder a bit of responsibility.

50 years too late for the concept to be understood.
