Look, Ma, no brakes.

Large tech companies resist any sort of regulation like the plague. There’s plenty of examples of the heights (depths?) they will go to in order to shake off any kind of oversight. One could argue that there are some good reasons to minimise regulation on innovative entities but moves like this from Microsoft (and they’re not alone here) to remove their own internal regulation just confirms that the large tech companies cannot be trusted to think beyond profits and share prices and that responsibility for the broader care of customers and humankind in general has to lie somewhere else.
