Internet Privacy – FTC worried self regulation not working

Lots of tangents from the story on new FTC study on industry policing and advertising their privacy policies:

  • FTC has two votes for regulation or legislation (doubts cast upon self regulation as a tool – public failure)
  • Study thinks companies make the information regarding their privacy policies too difficulty for the average person to find/comprehend (market failure = information assymetry)

Points of interest here:

  • Center for Digital Democracy
  • Future of Privacy Forum

Interesting difference in headlines:

Note to self:  Start an inventory of policy tools in each category of cyber policy
