CDT Comments on FTC's Spyware Principles

CDT: “As it seeks models to address the mounting issues surrounding online behavioral targeting, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) should begin by applying the principles it developed to guide its anti-spyware enforcement efforts, CDT said today. In comments submitted to the FTC in advance of its upcoming “town hall” meeting on behavioral advertising, CDT pointed out that the FTC’s principles — which center around the core concept that consumers should have ultimate control over their computers — are directly applicable to behavioral advertising. In addition to filing its own comments, CDT also joined with other public interest advocates in offering a list of important questions the FTC must address over the course of the two-day meeting.”
