EPIC Calls for Strong Communications Privacy Rules

EPIC has urged the Federal Communications Commission “to fully apply" the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights to all communications services. The FCC's proposed privacy rules would regulate only broadband services and are based on the weak "notice and choice" framework.EPIC said the agency should endorse data minimization requirements, promote Privacy-Enhancing Technologies, and require opt-in consent. EPIC also urged the Commission to regulate all companies that gather consumer data for communications services.
