Excerpt from 'Senate Committee Discusses Online Privacy...':

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation conducted a hearing about online privacy at which Federal Trade Commission Commissioner Julie Brill testified, supporting the idea of a Do Not Track mechanism both online and on mobile devices.

Brill told senators at the hearing on “Privacy and Data Security: Protecting Consumers in the Online World” that the FTC has brought more than 300 privacy-related actions, including spam cases, data security cases, Fair Credit Reporting Act cases, spyware cases, and cases enforcing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
