Stop Companies and Data Broker Websites from Sharing Personal Identifying Information

People search websites also called “data brokers,”  make a business of collecting, publicly sharing, and selling your personal information on the Internet.  Many of us have spent countless hours attempting to delete our current and dated personal information from sites such as: True people Search, White Pages, and Intellius. In all fairness, they have removal and opt-out tools on their sites to delete your personal information. Not just YOUR information, but everyone in your family. The problem is: Your Information Shouldn't be Listed or Shared in the First Place! Protecting our personal information shouldn't come hidden within a company's fine print. Many institutions like banks will send you letters offering you an opportunity to opt-out of information sharing with Third Parties. If you don't pay for postage and return the letter, you're screwed!  No company, business, or entity, should assume the rights of our personal information. If we NEVER OPTED IN, we shouldn't have to opt-out.  Data brokerage Should Be Illegal.  Collecting, Publicly Sharing, and Selling our personal should be illegal.The idea behind Public Information, is that someone can go to a courthouse or government entity and search for information. No one would ever know if you have a lien or criminal record or even where you lived, if data brokers hadn't released it online.  People are being violated everyday through identity theft, hacking, data breaches, stalking, harassment, and violence because OUR personal information is involuntarily accessible online.  According to Findlaw, "The right to privacy embodies the belief that a person’s private information should be free from public scrutiny and that we have a right to be left alone. As technology evolves, more and more of our personal information is in the hands of third parties. From e-commerce and e-mail, to smart phones and social media, advances in technology will continue to challenge our legal system and personal expectations of privacy." The Federal Trade Commission is the primary agency for enforcing privacy policies. Americans are paying into the United States government protecting us, but still we remain exploited.  Want to learn more:  There are Civil Laws protecting Americans from personal information sharing. Public Disclosure of Private Facts This tort defends against the unauthorized disclosure of details about a person’s private life that are not generally known. Generally, disclosure to one or two people does not constitute a public disclosure unless there is an implication that the information should be spread around. Personal Information Sharing with Third Parties should only be an OPT-IN request, not the other way around. Companies, Institutions, and Third Parties shouldn't assume the right to our personal information because we are engaging in business or paying for a service.  As Americans, we are ALL affected by this. Please sign this petition if you care about protecting your personal and families identifying information.

(YouTube to Remove) These Shit Rules #YouTubePartnerProgram

YouTube has announced a change to its partner program recent week's ago. Now on creators won’t be able to turn on monetization until they hit 10,000 lifetime views on their channel but now, They announced today your YouTube channel, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn't meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.  What part of this stops people from having a channel?Not everyone reaches 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months and 1,000 subscribers and are they going to pay for those 4,000 watch hours? I don't think it's fair what Youtube is doing!! Many weird rules nowadays for independent small/medium Youtubers, Youtube was the best site some years ago, but with these strange rules had made the Youtubers life hard to make their content. Honestly at this point we should just let YouTube die and burn to the fucking ground, it’s disgusting how they’re treating any small YouTubers for the actions of one of their biggest stars, At this point we need a new YouTube website, some better and less fucked up.  It's really sad for independent small/medium Youtubers creators, not everyone reaches 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months and 1,000 subscribers and are they going to pay for those 4,000 watch hours? But with the power of the internet, I think we can get rid of this weird rules once and for all, with your help of signing this petition it could lead to removing this rules!
