“Do Not Track Me” gains traction in Washington

I’m just back from a sweltering week in Washington, DC, convinced that those of us who care about protecting consumers’ online privacy have reason for optimism.  There is growing interest in creating a “Do Not Track Me” list and mechanism to implement it.

Sure, it could be that the 95-degree-plus temperatures coupled with humidity nearly as high fried my brain, but I don’t think so.  My analysis is based on meetings with Congressional,  Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission staff members, as well as others who follow the issue closely.

Congress is clearly beginning to focus on online privacy. Rep. Rick Boucher, D-VA, has been circulating a draft bill for discussion.  His colleague, Rep. Bobby Rush, D-IL, has introduced an online privacy bill.

Meanwhile, the Senate Commerce Committee, chaired by Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, just held hearings on the subject. Those sessions seemed to draw more than token attention from members, perhaps because of the Wall Street Journal’s series “What They Know” that has revealed in great detail just how much of our activity on the Web is monitored by online companies like Google.

At that Senate hearing, FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz mentioned the possibility of a “Do Not Track” function.

Why I’m encouraged after last week is that the idea — something that would be to analogous the tremendously popular and successful “Do Not Call” list run by the FTC — is more than just talk. There is action.

Indeed, one reason I was in Washington was to join representatives of organizations like USPIRG, Consumers Union, Consumer Federation of America and Consumer Action, to meet with  staff members for Sen. Mark Pryor, D-AR. They are gathering information because the senator is considering the possibility of introducing a “Do Not Track Me” bill this fall.

A knowledgeable FTC staff member confirmed that the staff is working on how Do Not Track could be implemented. And a meeting with a key FCC aide left me convinced that the commission is putting new emphasis on consumer privacy. Recall that at the Senate hearing Chairman Jules Genachowski testified that the FCC and the FTC have formed a joint task force to develop “effective and coordinated approaches to protecting online privacy.”

With the election rapidly approaching can meaningful comprehensive online privacy legislation be passed before the end of the year?  That’s probably unlikely.

But a significant step forward — simple “Do Not Track”  legislation — that would authorize the FTC to administer a list and implement the mechanism is completely doable.

“Do Not Call” is  tremendously popular.  People understand it.  It’s the same with “Do Not Track.”  Our recent national poll shows 80% support.  I think it has a good chance of winning bipartisan support.

It will take awhile to get comprehensive  privacy legislation through Congress, but based on what I saw and heard in Washington last week the time for “Do Not Track” has come and momentum is growing.

    Hi, John.

    Assuming a do-not-track list is in the future and ignoring technical details, how might it work? Would it apply to every tracking group, or would there be certain exceptions? Would it only apply to browsing? What about email, web applications and mobile/”wireless” tracking?

    Also. Could websites use personal data obtained from other sources (such as from the offline world) to choose ads or content? Could people on this list be discriminated against? Would such a list give people a false sense of security? Would opting in give websites any information they didn’t already have?

  2. MYOB Says:

    I despair for our species!
    “Do not track me” list? How? Seriously. Any one of you given it any thought? How to actually get such a list to work? You are dangerously uninformed!
    And to think how undiluted my respect for Consumer Watchdog used to be, aah those were the days. In one fell swoop you’ve proven yourself capable of idiocy, gross misrepresentation, flat out lies and creepy ‘ideologically’(?) driven misinformation campaigns.
    Tea-party inspired, are you?

    Shame on you.

    I completely believe in the consumer/user’s ability to protect their privacy to whatever extent they feel necessary, there are options available for being in charge of the privacy issue. Disconnect (http://www.disconnectere.com), while only available for two browsers at the moment, allows individuals to see what is being blocked, and decide, if they so choose, not to block information from certain sites. Perhaps we should encourage people to be responsible for themselves rather than take self-responsibility and choice out of the hands of the citizens.
    I’d appreciate a copy of the questions that were asked in the ‘national survey’ rather than just the interpretation with somewhat inflammatory, and hypothetical, situations as represented in the one question that was in the PDf
    “Would you be more or less likely to vote for
    the Congressperson from your area if you
    found out they took campaign contributions
    from Google and then refused to hold
    hearings on the so-called “Wi-Spy” scandal
    perpetrated by Google, where the company
    gathered communications from home WiFi
    networks without permission from the owner
    and stored the data on its servers, or
    wouldn’t it make a difference to you either
    way?
    More likely
    Less likely
    No different, not sure
    12%
    59%
    29%”

    That’s a leading, hypothetical question based on a situation most people don’t even know about. That’s not how you gather information, it’s how you inflate numbers to make a bogus survey.
