New Privacy Laws to protect data of research participants

The Straits times 8th may

Information such as name and age will be out of bounds to researchers. i personally agree to this only to an extent, i agree to the terms of not showing photographs but restricting the name and age is a little bit over board. People may say that its a form of protecting the applicant, but over doing it to an extent may make things even worse .
Haven't Singaporeans ever learnt their lesson that over doing things may lead to undesired outcomes? But overall i hope that when this law comes into play it does yield positive results if not it'll just be another waste of space in our thick gook of rules and regulations.
