苹果库克:隐私问题已完全失控 支持政府对科技公司监管?_最新英语新闻

Though Apple CEO Tim Cook is not a fan of the idea of government regulation of tech companies, he admits discussion about it is "fair" because data privacy is a burgeoning issue.

虽然苹果公司首席执行官库克不是“政府对科技公司进行监管”这个观点的强烈支持者,但他目前表示政府部门对科技公司监管很合理,因用户隐私问题已完全失控。

“Generally, for me, I’m not a big fan of regulation, I think self-regulation is the best," Cook said in a CNN interview Monday night. "But when it’s not working, and in some cases it’s not working, you have to ask yourself what form of regulation might be good. And I think it’s a fair question many people are asking at this point."

库克在接受CNN采访时表示,总体而言,我不太喜欢(外界)监管,我认为自我监管是最好的。但当自我监管不起作用时,你必须问问自己,还有什么样的监管形式可能是好的。我认为,在当下,很多人提出这样一个问题是非常合理的。

Cook added that Apple’s stance is that “privacy is a fundamental human right.”

库克补充说,苹果的立场是“隐私是一项基本的人权”。

"The privacy thing has gotten totally out of control," Cook said. "I think most people are not aware of who is tracking them, how much they’re being tracked, and sort of the large amounts of detailed data that are out there about them."

库克表示,我认为隐私问题已经完全失控。我认为大多数人都不知道到底是谁在跟踪他们(的信息),他们被跟踪了多少,以及有多少关于他们的详细数据被泄露了出去。

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said earlier this year while testifying before Congress that he was open to governmental regulation on Facebook and other social media and tech companies, as long as it was the right regulation.

Facebook创始人兼首席执行官马克.扎克伯格今年早些时候在国会作证时公开表示,他对政府监管Facebook和其他社交媒体及科技公司持开放态度,只要规定是合理的。
