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

I am writing on behalf of the Intellectual Property Law (IPL) Section of the American Bar Association (ABA), to request an extension of time, to March 15, 2011, to comments on the FTC's Report on "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: A Proposed Framework for Businesses and Policymakers." Members of the IPL section have been working actively to develop comments, but need more time to do so and to coordinate the submission of comments with other interested sections of the ABA, specifically the Science and Technology, Business Law and Individual Rights & Responsibilities sections. The additional time will allow for better coordination among the various interested ABA sections as well proper consideration by the leadership of the ABA IPL section. This extension request is authorized by Marylee Jenkins, chair of the IPL Section of the ABA. Submitted by Mark Wittow, chair of the ABA IPL section's Information Technology Division.
