Do Not Track bill introduced in Senate; Follows earlier privacy bills introduced by Kerry and Stearns


On Monday, Sen. Rockefeller introduced new legislation authorizing the FTC to enact regulations over the collection and use of personal information obtained by online tracking tools that track individual online activity. The "Do Not Track" bill follows the recent FTC report on privacy (which we discussed here) outlining a new framework for privacy protections and a do-not-track mechanism. The text of the bill is not yet publicly available, but other information about the bill may be found here.
