Deadline for Comments: June 4
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.May 10, 2010
The congressmen who drafted an online privacy bill that was released last week are giving interested parties until June 4 to register comments, reports Tech Daily Dose. One of the bill's authors, Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA), will begin meeting with stakeholders to inform revisions to the proposed bill, which has been praised by some and panned by others. As drafted, the bill's online behavioral advertising regulations would require third parties that collect information on Web sites and then use the information to target ads to consumers on other sites to obtain consumers' permission for the data collection, with some exceptions.
