NTIA To Accommodate Remote Stakeholders, Not Enough, Say Some
MOBILE PRIVACY—U.S.July 6, 2012
After several advocacy groups expressed concern they would not be able to appropriately participate in stakeholder meetings on mobile privacy, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has said it will have staffers act as proxies for groups not able to attend in person, Multichannel News reports. The American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Digital Democracy and Consumers Union say that is not enough, the report states. An NTIA spokesman said it is "working to ensure that all stakeholders...are able to participate meaningfully in the July 12" meeting, adding the NTIA will "continue to evaluate how to ensure robust participation by all stakeholders."
