Pryor To Introduce Online Tracking Bill
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.October 1, 2010
Senate Commerce Consumer Protection Subcommittee Chairman Mark Pryor (D-AR) says he is working on legislation to give consumers control over whether they are tracked online, reports Tech Daily Dose. Pryor says the bill could include a "do-not-track" list, similar to the do-not-call list, where consumers can opt out of having their online behavior tracked. "I just think Americans ought to have a choice on how much their... Internet behavior is tracked," said Pryor. According to the report, the senator plans to have the bill ready to introduce in the next congress. Privacy advocates and FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz have voiced support for a do-not-track list, the report states.
