Date: 
December 21, 2010
Docket Number: 
101214614-0614-01
The Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force is conducting a comprehensive review of the nexus between privacy policy and innovation in the Internet economy. On April 23, 2010, the Department published a Notice of Inquiry seeking comment from all Internet stakeholders on the impact of current privacy laws in the United States and around the world on the pace of innovation in the information economy. The Department now seeks further comment on its report entitled, "Commercial Data Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy: A Dynamic Policy Framework," available at http://www.ntia.doc.gov/internetpolicytaskforce/. Through this Notice requesting comments on the report, the Department hopes to spur further discussion with Internet stakeholders that will lead to the development of a series of Administration positions that will help develop an action plan in this important area.
