With DNT, What Next for Policymakers?
DO NOT TRACKSeptember 19, 2013
In what can be perceived as a rollercoaster week for the World Wide Web Consortium’s Do Not Track (DNT) working group, IAPP VP of Research and Education Omer Tene asks if the appointment of the Center for Democracy & Technology’s Justin Brookman and Adobe’s Carl Cargill can save the process. “Hopefully, all sides will work together to pursue an agreed-upon solution, since an implosion of the process, which seemed inevitable on Tuesday as the Digital Advertising Alliance announced its departure from the group, would cast a long shadow over the prospects for multi-stakeholder resolutions to the burning privacy problems of our time,” he writes. In this post for Privacy Perspectives, Tene explores what’s next for DNT and the policymakers working on such a resolution.
