FTC Report Expected This Month

PRIVACY LAW—U.S.

November 23, 2010

Venable LLP discusses the forthcoming Federal Trade Commission (FTC) report recommending new privacy principles for the collection and use of data for marketing and advertising purposes. The report, which is due out this month, "is expected to build upon the themes explored during the series of privacy roundtables," according to Venable's analysis. Topics that are expected to be addressed in the report include privacy by design, privacy notices, consumer choice and consumer and business education. "The report may also address the notion of a 'Do Not Track' registry," the Venable analysis states, referencing FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz's comments earlier this year that the commission is evaluating such an opt-out provision.
