Dear Sir or Madam, Attached as a PDF file please find Consumer Watchdog's comments on The Federal Trade Commission s recent report Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: A Proposed Framework for Businesses and Policymakers. Consumer Watchdog calls on the Federal Trade Commission to create a Do Not Track Me mechanism to protect consumers online privacy and believes that such a mechanism must have the force of law behind it. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, John M. Simpson Consumer advocate Consumer Watchdog 1750 Ocean Park Blvd., Suite 200 Santa Monica, CA 90405
