Industry Responds to Privacy Bill
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.June 11, 2010
The June 4 deadline has passed, and ClickZ reports that industry and advocacy groups have submitted comments on the Boucher-Stearns privacy bill that was released last month for review. Both groups seem to believe the bill needs work, according to the report, with industry calling for fewer restrictions on the collection and sharing of data and advocates saying that it lacks effective measures to promote consumer privacy. Earlier this week, Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) indicated that he would like to work with his colleagues on crafting legislation that would help build consensus on the issues.
