People have very strong opinions. After all, acronyms are everything in privacy law (see, e.g., GDPR, CCPA, CPRA, HIPAA, COPPA, PIPEDA, BIPA, GLBA, LGPD).

We decided to have a little fun with this and created an online poll.  Click on the link and vote for your favorite. We’ll close voting on April 2 and release the results on our blog www.bytebacklaw.com.

Many thanks to Jedidiah Bracy from the IAPP for graciously letting us “borrow” his idea.
