PRIVACY LAW—U.S.September 30, 2010
At an event on Capitol Hill yesterday, Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA) said that his online privacy legislation will be introduced early in the next congress, Tech Daily Dose reports. Boucher drafted the legislation with Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Bobby Rush (D-IL). "We want to make sure that electronic commerce is enhanced by giving to consumers privacy protections that they don't have today," Boucher said. The legislation aims to give users more control over how their personal information is collected and used. Among other requirements, it would let users opt out of information collection.
