Leibowitz: FTC Moving Forward on COPPA, DNT
CONSUMER PRIVACY—U.S.November 14, 2012
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairman Jon Leibowitz says the agency is continuing its efforts on both Do Not Track (DNT) and updates to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). At The Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Conference in Washington, DC, Leibowitz said COPPA updates would likely be finished by the end of this year, but Reuters reports he was less sure of a completion date for DNT efforts. "We continue to be optimistic. It's not a certainty, though," Leibowitz said.
