The National Telecommunications & Information Administration will hold its first privacy multistakeholder meeting July 12. The subject, as expected, will be a code of conduct for applications and interactive services on mobile devices.
It is the first in a planned series of such stakeholder meetings.
The White House has charged NTIA, its chief telecom policy advisor, with getting stakeholders together on a voluntary privacy bill of rights enforceable by the Federal Trade Commission. The White House is also looking to get legislative muscle behind the bill of rights, but in the meantime is pushing industry players to commit voluntarily. Violators of that commitment could then be the target of FTC action under its charter to go after "false and deceptive" claims.
