Focusing public attention on emerging privacy and civil liberties issues

NTIA to Hold Public Meeting on Information Privacy

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration(NTIA) will hold a public meeting on "Information Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy" on May 7. The NTIA is seeking comments from "all Internet stakeholders, including the commercial, academic, and civil society sectors, on the impact of current privacy laws in the United States and around the world on the pace of innovation in the information economy." The discussion will center around whether current privacy laws serve consumer interests and fundamental democratic values. EPIC has previously recommended comprehensive privacy standards for NTIA privacy working groups. EPIC has also filed friend of the court brief against the NTIA's disclosure of domain holder personal information. For more information see National Telecommunications and Information Administration: Public Notices.
