This is good. Just one thing: the legislation on this should also protect our privacy from the government as well, and where that isn't possible, the government should be prohibited from using that data as well. That I do not see in this bill of rights and it should be.
 
A quick glance indicates that this is only concerned with commercial uses of private data, and nothing here will limit the government's ability to seize any personal data, or even inform a citizen that their privacy has been so violated.
 
Guns must be banned but which r terribly needed by lots people!
In digital age,any human made regulations r unnecessary!
If China boycotts internet world is wrong,then,why the Obama's administration is right?
 
I guess we can expect a repeal of some of the more egregious aspects of NDAA any day now.
 
“Something must be done.
“This is something.
“Therefore, this must be done.”

I’m looking forward to November.
 
i wonder what he is going to sing next. something about lowering gas prices i hope.
 
Please be aware that any legislation is open to loopholes and exploitation . It's a start but this is a double edged sword .
 
Wait, why it's drafting a bill that is taking steps in the right direction ever wrong? So it's not the entire bill we would like, I don't see any language in the bill that prevents further amendments. You really think that legislation for such a touchy subject is going to be completed overnight? Why is it Obama does something good, it's pandering and ineffective. When he makes a sweeping reform, he is being a fascist socialist. How about cutting the guy who has managed to keep our economy from becoming a flaming wreck, killed Public Enemy Number 1 whilst scaling back two wars, and managed to pass health care reform in the face of enormous lobbyist oppostion a freaking break! He might not be the most perfect President ever, but he's far from the worst!
 
I didn't deny President Obama's ability! As so far we're only discussing that bill right or wrong and it's nothing to do with the Obama's administration good or bad!

+Carl Barrett I happen to agree with you. This is a decent proposal, and on the private sector issues I can't see any huge flaws or omissions. The problem is that no one in Washington is willing to fight for the actual Bill of Rights. You know, the one already in place?

Except the 2nd, of course.
 
Please stop making people's name, address, DOB, and every place they've ever lived and person they are related to available from companies like intelius! I tried to have my information sealed after working at a psychiatric facility only to find out that only celebrities can do it. Someone used the internet knowing only my name to visit me at home on more than one occasion. Whenever you have information at the DMV or fill out a tax return or own land, etc, that information is collected, distributed to marketers and even made available for sale online....unless you are a celebrity. Even when you contact multiple sites to have your information removed, they don't do it right away, have already sold your information to others and when they 'update' then your information is places back on their site and you have to do it all again. They never completely remove all your information as you request anyway.
 
A few things:

This is a great first step, but as with everything else, the devil is in the (enforcement) details.

Why is the focus on "consumers?" Am I a consumer if I'm reading the New York Times or the Huffington Post? Or does it just apply to ecommerce sites like Amazon? How does this apply to twitter or facebook or Google+ and other social networkign sites? Maybe the word consumers should be replaced with the word individuals so that it applies more broadly to all internet activities.

Replace the phrase "how they use it" with "how companies, website owners, and software developers use it." Companies are not the only ones who have websites. Individuals have websites, and they should be required to publish their privacy policies just as companies should. Also, we need the recognition that web browsers are not the only way personal data are collected. Apps for smartphones and tablets may be the "next generation" of online activities, and these may be written by individuals and not companies.

Lastly, it should be explicitly stated that privacy statements will also make clear how long they will hold onto individual data.
 
lol, is this still an issue? When are people going to realize that privacy is an illusion and the only way to be secure and comfortable is to avoid doing embarrassing and/or questionable things. Better to not do a thing which would compromise your morals than to do a thing and know you are wrong. Which is no excuse for inaction. When you have decided a thing should not be done, find something else to do.
 
This is absolutely something I can get behind.

+Joe McCrary you are right, but it's because this issue is so multifaceted that it will take a long time and many bills to very the job done. As such, any step in the right direction should be applauded.
+Anthony Mortenson I don't say this often or lightly, but that might be the most stupid thing I've ever heard. You are just trolling right? Hitting up the +The White House threads for the lulz? You must be, cause suggesting that all we have to do is, don't EVER do anything questionable? What are you? 10? That's an expectation that no one can live up to, and even if you could "questionable" is a completely relative term. One man's "questionable" is another man's "Saturday Night". Everyone has a right to privacy, digital or otherwise.
 
I would love to have it in writing that he's got our back when it comes to these awful pieces of legislation coming out of congress now like ACTA or SOPA or the next generation of bills. So far, our dear president has been awful when it comes to privacy rights of people online.
 
Need I even say that this is yet another manifestation of the SOPA/PIPA bills?
 
+Carl Barrett the concept of privacy is different for everyone and to say that the federal government should regulate a definition of privacy is, yet another example of the people just handing over the keys to all our lives to the government. Since when is a first term president ever looking out for our best interest? All he cares about is getting reelected and the way he does that is just cater to the group that whines the loudest, which in this case is all those people screaming for our privacy to be transferred from the Googles and the Facebooks, who rely on their users and must remain relevant to them, to the politicians who feed public illusion in order to always look like the less sucky option when it comes voting time. +Anthony Mortenson i agree with you. If you want your life to remain private dont post it online, just like if you dont want people to know your race or sex, dont post your picture on your front door. We are responsible for the information we make available to anyone online.
 
YEAAHH!!! More federal regulations!!! I feel safer already.
 
+Lane Greer You must not be aware of how much data can be collected without you having to post it. Cookies, server logs and accounts (like the one you just posted with) can be used to collect quite a bit about the person behind them.

Example: go google something from your house. Now, google the same thing without signing in at a coffee shop or McDonald's or w/e. Compare the results. I promise it's different. Those results are "customized" using data collected from your previous searches. That's right. Whatever you look for is logged and tied to your account. This data is also used to show you 'relevant' ads on other sites.

I run a web server. If you were to visit my server, I could tell what city you live in (maybe even to your zip code), your IP address, what browser you used to visit it, what time it was, etc. And that's just a dinky server access log. No other tools and I can track all that. I can even tell what ISP you have from your IP address. So consider that when you evaluate this type of proposal and make a claim "don't post it if you want it private."

That rings true for sure, but it isn't enough to truly protect your privacy.
 
+Matt Whitehead is entirely right. To those who think "Just don't post EVERYTHING about yourself and you will be fine!" or "This is an unneeded law that panders to the whiney!", I would suggest reading up on the subject. This is about protecting the information that's collected and controlling what goes where. It's going to certainly be collected, anonymous data collection is what pays for all the free services we all enjoy, such as Google+, so it is a necessary evil. Since its going to exist, so must responsible ways to control it. If you have better ideas, I'm sure Obama is open to them!

I don't need more unnecessary laws... In the us the government was created to regulate interstate commerce issues that couldn't be managed within states. we could just sue or boycott those who do something wrong....

Now how about releasing that oil pipeline to Canada so I can get gas under four dollars again. Xoxoxo

The auto-translate of some of this Chinese is confusing. Much of it looks like crazy-person talk. But that's just bad translation. When I find that some of the comments were actually written in English, it makes me sad.
 
Where, exactly, in the Constitution is the authority granted to do this?
 
Where the Constitution begins with "We The People." It is truly amazing how blinded Obama-haters are by their hate so that their idea of people's rights is selective...

本人自九月下旬以来一直居住在无锡乡间,通讯受到监控,信息不灵,与其他难友的联系也不便,因此只能以个人名义发表以下抗议声明。

迟至今日我才得知全国人大常委、香港的范徐丽泰女士把“六四”称为“不幸事件”,我感到非常气愤,无法容忍。据我们二十多年来的寻访、搜集,已经找到“六四”死难者202人,更多的死者尸骨不知去向。这么多人死于枪弹、坦克的虐杀之下,那是不折不扣的大屠杀!人命关天!岂能轻描淡写地用“不幸事件”四个字来形容?

范徐丽泰作为香港的一位市民,尽管年已66岁,只要合乎法律,她有权角遂香港特首,但她作为一个有影响的政治人物,在竞选前的造势中,她无权就“六四“这一关乎国家和民族的重大政治事件罔顾事实、胡言乱语,任意伤害“六四”亡灵和”六四”难属——天安门母亲。你作为一名全国人大常委,理应得知天安门母亲自1995年以来每年给“两代会”各位代表要求公正、合理地解决“六四”问题的公开信,如称不知,那就是你的严重失职。

你作为香港的的一位市民,难道连香港每年维园的“六四”烛光晚会都不知不晓吗?果若如此,一个对香港的民情民意如此麻木不仁的人,还有何资格去竞选——何况是特首这个职务!你作为一个知名的政治人物,如对震惊世界的“六四”还只能靠从CNN处获得讯息,那只能说明你无知无能得多么可悲,果若如此,那你连当个中共当局的跟班、随从都不配。

你身为人妻人母,总得有点人性,存些良知,去教育后代吧!但面对“六四”这一人间惨剧竟如此冷血,我真不知道你如何面对你的家人以及香港的后代!

我十分感谢香港支联会给你送去《天安门母亲之路》光碟等有关“六四”的重要资料,请你观阅。

我强烈要求你:
(1)就你的言论向“六四”亡灵和天安门母亲公开道歉;
(2)与我本人或天安门母亲群体公开对话,让我们当面告诉你“六四”真相。
