I agree that banning something just makes it go underground. The issue here is not about banning, but about putting limits on a technology that can easily lead to all sorts of violations of privacy and overreach by government and businesses. Without regulations the face recognition technology is a huge potential threat to all of us. In this case, Amazon is voting to sell the tech without appropriate regulations in place.It is a clear sign of putting profit over people, but Amazon has been doing that for years. In fact, most large successful companies, banks, etc. have gamed the system to make it easier for them to profit at almost everyone else's expense.
