FTC Issues Privacy Best Practices Report

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) weighed in with a privacy “best practices” report. 112 pages that you might find helpful or at least “cure” insomnia.
In a nutshell…
Creating a “framework” with “principles”, the FTC seems to be punting on the issue of privacy except where there are really outrageous deceptive acts.
* Web browsers are already including do-not-track features (good).
* There is pending privacy legislation in Congress (most of it bad). Think of swatting a mosquito with a sledgehammer 10 times just to make sure it’s dead.
