Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee
Washington, DC | April 5, 2011
The online privacy Do Not Track proposal (DNT), modeled after the popular “Do Not Call” concept, has captured the imagination of those who wish to protect consumer privacy in Congress, in industry and among privacy advocates and consumers alike. Consumer privacy advocates have proposed it, the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission has endorsed it, and Members of Congress have drafted legislation to enact it. Yet remarkably, there is no broad consensus on *what* DNT is or even on *who” should be responsible for making it a reality.
I joined other experts for a panel regarding the potential implementation of Do Not Track. Others included representatives from Microsoft, the Digital Advertising Alliance, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Internet Caucus Advisory Committee.
