Senator introduces strong e-privacy bill
Privacy from Companies
1/30/2001; 4:39:34 PM 'Senator John Edwards re-introduced a bill on Monday that would require Web sites to get permission from visitors before tracking their movements online.
'The North Carolina Democrat's bill stakes out an aggressive position in the debate over Internet privacy, requiring Web sites to reveal their use of technology that commonly runs in the background without the knowledge of the visitor.'
At least somebody is representing this position. It'll be compromised out of existance, but the final result will hopefully be better then it would have been.
