A Preliminary FTC Staff Report on "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: A Proposed Framework for Businesses and Policymakers"

I am well beyond "computer savvy," and I do believe that I do a fair job of protecting my privacy on the Internet. However, it is a real challlenge. I have to go through multiple levels of privacy pages on many sites and when I hear of yet another aggregator, I have to go through yet another complex dance to safeguard my information. Plain users, starting with the "computer savvy" ones have no chance. The people need protection.
