(RTTNews.com) – Apple Inc. ( AAPL ) Chief Executive Tim Cook called for stronger privacy regulations that prevent the misuse of data in the light of the controversial leak of Facebook user information, according to reports.
Cook called for “well-crafted” regulations that prevent the information of users being put together and applied in new ways without their knowledge during a session on global inequality at the annual China Development Forum in Beijing on Saturday.
