White House Unveils Online Privacy 'Bill of Rights' to Protect Users

Quote:
The Obama administration on Thursday laid out its blueprint for a "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights" as part of a larger initiative to improve online privacy protections and to give users more control over how their personal information is used on the Internet. Part of this initiative involves an agreement with advertising networks and leading Internet companies to get on board with Do Not Track technology, which is baked into most major browsers.

And what can keep the leading Internet companies to sign the bill and still track the user through various hidden forms? I believe this is another attempt to make the Internet user think he has privacy, or even more generalized, make the people think they still have privacy in different segments of their life.

And yes, I can take criticism very well, so fire away if you feel I'm wrong. I'm actually genuinely interested about this whole privacy game.

Actually, that article gives very little information about the content of the purposed legislation. Beyond the likely superficial nature of the bill, I am also concerned about what else it may contain hidden, that will work against internet users, instead of for them.

Another problem so large and intricate that it can seemingly only be addressed by this overreaching and inept Executive branch...

Their isn't much information on this but it does seem to me it's like locking your screen door and their for you are safer. I don't think soooo.

I was just reading the post on the progress of the piracy saga...and had a question. Do these new efforts in privacy protect my right to pirate? Probably not.

No, it not going to protect anyone's piracy, but hopefully, it may protect them from the type of spying that is now being planned, which means that you would have to be caught by a legitimate means.
