As major metadata scandal which also involves companies like Verizon Google AT&T AOL and FaceBook has since city officials wondering.
And what happens in Vegas actually stays in Vegas as we told you yesterday those Vegas officials.
What these companies to do more protect the privacy of Americans and they have launched a campaign called no the code.
Bob -- as a Las Vegas attorney and longtime resident of sin city at a different hey it's great to see you.
Bob on this issue thank you give the first time that the Las Vegas convention bureau has you know kind of grabbed the -- and to have advertising marketing campaign with -- But this is a bit surprising.
Way to the motivation is here for Las Vegas officials to to spend this much money on.
I think like any major city to be honest with you I think it's great that they're basically standing up for the privacy of individuals.
The reminding these companies that people who travel.
People go to Las Vegas and spend millions of dollars in -- in the year of New York City.
The Chicago LA that in fact they're stepping out there saying wait a second recognize our fundamental rights.
Recognize that you and -- as individuals have the right to privacy.
As a matter of fact protect.
These people's rights to privacy because look.
If people cover Las Vegas.
And they're spending a lot of money you have big gamblers the last thing that casinos want regardless where they are in a world.
Is to have that information available in some fashion.
Through these organizations and it seems to me that what -- like about this the most is they saw her speaking.
For all of us as individuals.
As a city and I commend that and I think other cities you'll see step up to the plate on this issue.
Will Bobby have another thing that's different I guess about Las Vegas and other cities and privacy is -- is the amount of big money gamblers that are calming hand there I mean is that -- real concern.
Is -- as far as it but -- they want privacy when they're spending this much money on gambling your privacy for other activities and doing Las Vegas.
There's not its casino you can't walk and as you know that doesn't have eyes in the sky video surveillance on the strip permanent.
Surveillance as you know on the strip now that's for crime prevention of things like that.
That's distinctively different.
If in fact -- we go into a public place and we wanna gamble and we're spent a lot of money.
Number one there's a lot of people to watch you -- number two there's an expectation of no privacy in that situation not a problem however.
When you are taking person -- data that we've seen.
In the last few months.
And that personal data is being used for the government.
To basically do whatever they're saying they do -- I don't believe a word that they're saying I think it's more pervasive than her lead people to believe.
That is distinctively different when it comes to the expectation of privacy.
And if we keep eroding these type of rights then you and I as citizens of this country.
Basically what have no privacy what's way up our phone records and everything else that's proprietary to us.
Now becomes public to the government and they could use it anywhere they want and that's what's offensive to me.
And that's why I think any major city like Las Vegas or otherwise need to stand up and has stood up for individual rights.
