Do Not Track Bill to Be Introduced Feb. 11

Multichannel News reports that Rep. Jackie Speier (D.-Calif.) plans to introduce her bill on Friday that would allow online consumers to prevent marketers from tracking their online movements.Called "The Do Not Track Me Online Act of 2011," the bill is backed by the Consumer Federation of America, Center for Digital Democracy, Consumers Union and others.

Multichannel News also notes that Rep. Bobby Rush (R-Ill.) is introducing an online privacy bill this week, as well. And the Executive branch is getting into the act with The Federal Trade Commission and Commerce Department both preparing reports on what the government should do to protect citizens online.
