Three-week extension on Privacy Report comments

Just finishing your review of the preliminary FTC staff report, Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: A Proposed Framework for Business and Policymakers? There’s good news. The FTC has extended the deadline for comments to Friday, February 18th. The report suggests a framework that promotes privacy, transparency, innovation, and consumer choice — and the FTC wants your input on the privacy issues and challenges associated with 21st century technology and business practices.

Not sure where to start? The report poses specific questions about the direction of consumer privacy. Answer as many — or as few — as you’d like. You can also read the comments that have already been filed.

To make sure your voice is heard, file your comment online by February 18th.
