Today the White House released its long-awaited Privacy Report in which it unveiled a Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights intended to provide consumers with greater online privacy protection, and establish a blueprint for implementing the Bill of Rights through voluntary codes of conduct, federal legislation, and enforcement by the FTC and state Attorneys General.
