Research: Do Not Track
Rep. Speier to introduce ‘do not track’ bill next week
Hillicon Valley reports that Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) will introduce legislation dealing with online privacy next week. The legislation will provide an “opt out” for individuals that do not want to allow advertisers to track them. Jerome notes that the, “bill is narrowly tailored to address tracking issues only.” It is unknown just yet whether this is direct address tracking or would also include address tracking through cookies.
Jerome also reports that Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) is reintroducing a previously introduced privacy bill next week, but it will not use a “do not track” element.
