"An Internet 'privacy bill of rights' currently before the U.S. Senate has raised concerns from Internet firms that such a law could dent their advertising-driven business models. The Commercial Privacy Bill of Rights Act of 2011, introduced April 12 by Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and John McCain (R-AZ), broadly follows recommendations published last December by the Department of Commerce. These recommendations called for stricter limits on what Internet companies can do with the information they collect from consumers." (05/03/11)
