Commerce Privacy Report: FPF Comment


The report is a sophisticated effort to advance consumer privacy without thwarting innovation.  Although it sets a framework that will influence legislation, it provides a creative alternate path for mode of government initiated self regulation, with advocates at the table and the FTC providing enforcement.  If businesses respond by taking to call to serious engage in efforts to advance fair information practices, the US has the chance to take back the international privacy leadership role it once had.
