A Privacy Bill of Rights?

By Rich Johnson7 comments

The idea of a national “Privacy Bill of Rights” arrived two weeks after the Federal Trade Commission recommended the creation of a “Do Not Track” tool to let consumers stop or restrict advertisers from studying their online activity for ad targeting purposes — including the websites they visit, the links they check, their Internet searches, and their online purchases. But what might have some consumers confused is how advertisers are able to track them in the first place — and what in the world a “Privacy Bill of Rights” would even look like.

    If ever there was a time to use a good privacy service, this is it!

    Everyone hates tracking; I haven’t found that it’s a left- or right-wing issue. If anything, Republicans support tracking because it’s pro-advertisers and thus pro-business and free market economy.

  3. Nicole says:

    That oughta be fun to watch! Might drag down the whole internet?

  4. demi says:

    Who does not like breaking privacy? This is fun. Get access to this and see how it works.

    This is like a common men mentality. We want to know everything and then gossip over issues.
