FCC To Establish Privacy Rules for Internet Services

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said that the Commission will begin rulemaking proceedings for Internet privacy this fall. "If consumers worry that they don't have sufficient privacy online, why are they going to use online?" Wheeler said. The FCC 2015 Open Internet Order, published earlier this year, would expand the agency's authority to enforce privacy rules for Internet companies. EPIC has long supported the FCC's authority to protect consumer privacy.
