Remember that Arizona law that was going to regulate the Apple and Google app stores? It’s gone – the vote never happened. And there’s no explanation.
Why do we care?
This one is a quick one. I talk a lot about regulation, and discuss both pending and implemented legislation. We care because not everything happens.
In this case, there is some discussion that there was a brokered deal to make this law go away. Lobbyists may have gotten involved.
I’m not going down that rabbit hole. Instead, I’m highlighting that we care because what happens in legislatures matters… and there is a difference between something being proposed and debated and something implemented.
