“The report is a sophisticated effort to advance consumer privacy without thwarting innovation. Although it sets a framework that will influence legislation, it creates an alternate path for a mode of government initiated self regulation, with advocates at the table and the FTC providing enforcement. If businesses respond by seriously engaging in efforts to advance fair information practices, the U.S. has the chance to take back the international privacy leadership role it once had.”
