EPIC has sent a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee in advance of a hearing on “FCC Overreach: Examining the Proposed Privacy Rules.” EPIC described the shortcomings of the ”notice and choice” privacy framework and pointed to growing levels of public concern in the United States about Internet privacy. EPIC said that the FCC’s proposed privacy rules are a modest first step and that the Communications Communication has legal authority to go much further to safeguard American consumers. EPIC has repeatedly urged the Commission to broaden the scope of the proposed privacy rules.
