Advocates weigh-in on new privacy bill

This is a great post from the Information Law Group (ILG) which is a terrific resource for Internet privacy in particular and law and technology issues in general.

ILG analyzes and summarizes both consumer and privacy advocates as well as industry groups comments to the “Boucher” bill now making its way through Congress.

One particular area I’m interested in is the “opt-out” versus “opt-in” privacy provisions.  “Opt out” puts more burden on the consumer to engage with the privacy policies they are accepting while “opt in” puts more burden on the party requesting the right to collect information from consumers.
