EPIC Urges FCC to Fully Enforce Cable Privacy, Extend Rules to All Set-Top Boxes

In comments filed with the FCC on a proposal to unlock the set-top box market to retail manufacturers, EPIC urged the Commission to apply the Cable Act's privacy rules directly to all companies with access to cable subscriber data. EPIC explained that the Cable Subscriber Privacy Rules are "an effective model for privacy rules in the commercial sector, particularly concerning the collection of data about cable programming." However,  the FCC must clarify and enhance enforcement of these rules to address current business practices. EPIC has defended consumer privacy at the FCC for almost 20 years.
