In an op-ed for AdExchanger, Bosko Milekic, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Optable, outlines his support for Google's Privacy Sandbox, claiming that it isn't nearly as bad as critics argue.

Milekic also supports strong privacy regulations, claiming that technology needs to work in tandem with such laws rather than against them.
